Recent idea

  • - Maintain and optimise traffic flow
    - Less needless braking and re-accelerating by not-give-an-inch drivers and tailgaters...reduce noise and vehicle emissions for nearby residents especially at uphill sections
    - Reduce last-minute merging, rear-enders, road rage etc.
    - Avoid traffic bunching up into one lane, making it much harder for drivers at side streets without traffic lights to enter Carlingford Road...leading some of them to pull dangerous moves if not accidents

  • So that people can walk past fresh vegetables and herbs and take some if they wish. People will also be able to see how their food grows and enjoy the fragrant smell of fresh herbs.

  • A] live in a clean and healthy environment due to no incorrectly-filled and/or overfilled wheelie bins attracting ants rats and disease

    B] avoid hazards on/near the footpath and subsequent litigation due to either large rubbish dumped outside collection days and/or inappropriate rubbish e.g. building materials, broken glass etc.

    C] know what to do with certain rubbish not meant for the wheelie bins or the roadside

    D] residents both old and new are more aware, mindful of others and their duty of care to the environment they live in (not just within their units/apartments!) and be more vigilant, including the reporting of illegal dumping e.g. building materials and packaging at night from non-residents

  • 1} Pedestrians:
    A] can cross at pedestrian crossings near Chemist Warehouse, Coles, and the council car park in between without being hit/killed

    B] should be courteous and considerate to drivers and seek to cross in groups…need bright eye-catching signage in multiple languages?

    2} Drivers (especially those unfamiliar with Australian road rules and would only learn by either losing face or tangibly through fines and/or demerit points) are made aware that:
    A] pedestrians have right of way in Australia

    B] “no risk of hitting a pedestrian” does not mean not slowing down/speeding up/cutting off pedestrians with only 1cm to spare - especially when these drivers subsequently have to queue at/stop for the red light at the Carlingford Road intersection anyway…they actually lose no time!

    C] they must not drive onto the crossing if the road beyond the crossing is blocked

    D] they must STOP for pedestrians *at the stop line* when exiting the council car park

    E] they should use the overhead round mirror as they approach…and must STOP for pedestrians *at the stop line* when exiting the car park behind and under Coles and rejoining Rawson Street

    F] they must *not* park/stop along No Stopping zones along Rawson Street to wait/pick up/drop off passengers or for a quick shop (very evident after say 6 on weekdays), especially in high-riding vehicles as they block the line of sight between other drivers and pedestrians leading to more injuries/fatalities

    G] they should *not* zoom around blind corners around the car park area and when entering/exiting the car parks

    H] allow room for cars within the council car park *and* in the oncoming direction to enter/exit the council car park *without* blocking flowing traffic and incite road rage etc.

  • So that there is a place for people to gather, to give Epping a Town Centre and to provide more much needed parking space for Epping.

  • Drive safely. There are always cars that risk running through yellow (and red) lights and there have been quite a few significant car accidents at this intersection over the past few decades.

    There is currently a speed camera at the top of the hill next to Epping West (originally to curb speeding near the school) - cars naturally slow down at the top of the hill before charging down both sides, which sort of defeats the purpose of installing the speed camera.

  • Having a creek running through the area is such a nice part of nature. However, this creek is consistently full of rubbish - both in the water, and in the surrounding bushlands. This has caused it to smell, and unfortunately results in the local bush turkeys bringing up their chicks in the layers of filth.

  • Be safe on our roads by having clear lanes to travel in.

    For example, Crossing Carlingford Road travelling north on Midson Road, two lanes merge into one - no traffic markings and quite dangerous; with regular 'near misses' Midson Road going South at Mobbs Lane and Terry Road both need a dedicated right turn lane.

  • enjoy the Epping streets when walking and exercising even with high rise development

  • So that future generations are aware of the history of Epping. Given the rapid redevelopment of Epping in the coming years it would be great to have past images of Epping amongst the town centre and train station.
