No removal of 14 parking spaces on Pacific Hwy Hornsby

No removal of 14 parking spaces on Pacific Hwy Hornsby

Please don't remove14 parking spaces to make a bus lane or move the bus stop location 35m south of its current location on the Pacific Hwy near Edgeworth David Ave.

Why is this important?

These 14 parking spaces are used by local residents, customers of local businesses and couriers. It is unnecessary to remove them to make way for a bus lane as it will not improve traffic flow or travel times since the buses will still have to merge.

It is also unnecessary to move the bus stop 35m south of its current location to allow for more buses and passengers to use it in the future as there are multiple bus stops available at Hornsby Station less than a block away, where it would cause less pedestrian congestion & not negatively impact local residents & businesses.

Reasons for signing

  • Removing the 1-hour limit parking spaces will kill off the businesses on the Pacific Hwy because they will be too difficult to access, and will make deliveries and visits to residents in Horizon Towers impossible. The RMS says alternative parking is available in nearby streets - not true! Clearly they have never tried to park in those streets during business hours!
  • I use Edgeworth David Ave everyday, adding a bus lane will just make this road even more unbearable than it already is
  • I am in my 70s and rely on this bus stop to get home the shops with my grocery shopping. To move it 35 meters up the road means I would need to carry my shopping even further in rain and heat. Do not move this bus stop.
