A resident of Millwood Avenue has raised the following matters:
The dangers that residents of Millwood Avenue face every day, is that
a) Residents of Millwood Ave risk their lives every day trying to get to the bus stop. It is reported that the other day where a guy got out of his car, and yelled at the driver behind him, that he was already 20 kph over the speed limit, and was still being pushed to go faster!
b) The RMS website explains the number of accidents on Millwood avenue down from the Fullers Rd, Millwood Ave junction to Lady Game drive, and they continue to happen.
c) Backing out of a garage on Millwood Avenue is a challenge every day, even at 6.30 A.M.
d) Many discussions with police indicate they will not put a mobile traffic camera on Millwood Avenue due to OH and S issues for their members!
e) So, this road goes un – policed and is dangerous to
f) Sections of Millwood Avenue footpath are that narrow (towards Lady Game Drive) that speeding trucks and vehicles are a real and present danger to pedestrians.
g) If Fullers Rd gets a speed camera, then any chance of Millwood Avenue getting one are nigh on impossible.
h) I have written countless emails to RMS, even had a representative out to understand the issues, and to date – nothing.
i) Raised this at several CWPA meetings.
The issue of road safety in Millwood Avenue has been added to the Agenda of our next meeting on Thursday 21st November, 7:30 PM Dougherty Centre, Victor Street. Representative of RMS and the Police are being invited to attend.
