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.

  • So that people can take pride in their contribution to a greener, healthier and more beautiful Epping.
    Education in the community languages of Chinese and Korean needs to happen for those who haven't grown up with gardens and feel unable to plan and care for a garden.
    Maybe some competitions for best kept and prettiest footpath and most beautiful front garden to encourage this.

  • 8 to 80 rule should apply. ie. People aged from 8 to 80 should feel safe enough to use the cyclepaths

  • So that people can enjoy walking and driving through Epping without feeling enclosed by building sites and high rise apartments

  • Turn onto Carlingford Road without having to wait multiple red lights and/or use brute force to make those turns against oncoming traffic

  • Every town needs a car-free town centre to celebrate its unique character and have areas where residents can congregate as a community for leisure. If there is no designated car free zone town centre, then the town loses its soul and character, as the suburb becomes a place to 'drive through' rather than 'arrive at'. Piazza in Italy and Germany have plenty walking space for pedestrians and street entertainment and places rest by fountains and cafes, to meet friends and family. Its circular architecture provides a safer atmosphere as everyone is looking into the centre, reducing likelihood of theft as there are no dark corners and it is well lit.

    Store/Shop owners benefit ten fold having car free zone. street parking provides maximum of two cars outside a store at any one time. now imagine hundreds of potential customers each hour, if it is replaced with wide pedestrian areas and car free zones instead (e.g. piazza)

    Narrowing streets makes them safer for kids and elderly, as it slows vehicle traffic. Personally I feel we are all accountable for making our neighbourhood safer for our young and old. Liveable towns have their transportation needs fulfilled by a humming public transport system (train, bus) and making it easy and safe to bike and walk from station hubs.
