‘JUST TOO MANY ISSUES’
What a surprise. Council has caved in too often over recent years to greedy developers and allowed too many breaches, so why should yet another out of town developer, whose only interest is to make millions, comply with Kiama's restrictions? The Grand proposal and that huge ugly development across the road from it will simply continue the trend. Council has dropped the ball too many times and will once again allow Kiama's unique heritage to be destroyed.
NO SPACE FOR MORE SOUTH COAST TRAINS, EXPERT SAYS
There is plenty of space. The problem is that the South Coast Line is shared by freight between Unanderra and Waterfall and beyond Unanderra, that line is a single line. Duplicate the tracks beyond Unanderra, electrify the line beyond Kiama and FINISH the Maldon Dombarton line and the problem will be solved.
Duplicate the line to Shellharbour as a minimum, then electrify it to Bomaderry. More services will fit then, even if just local trains to Waterfall linking with the Suburban network. Here we are in 2017, living in NSW 3rd largest City, running on single line track to our areas where more land releases are scheduled & houses are to be built. Ridiculous really.
CORRIMAL SPEED CAMERA STILL NABS HUNDREDS OF DRIVERS
Not so much a speeding fine as a fine for driving while oblivious. As mentioned in the article, the road is straight and relatively flat, sight distance is good and there are plenty of warnings of both the speed limit and the presence of the cameras. If you still get caught, you're either paying no attention whatsoever to your surroundings, you're not in control of your vehicle or you've made a conscious decision to break the law. Whichever category you fit into, the fine and demerit points should make you lift your game or reconsider whether you should continue to drive.
