Sign the petition to stop the relocation of the City West Bus Layover to Turner Parklands and call for community consultation
The proposal to relocate the City West Bus Layover to Turner Parklands and to make it larger, catering for up to 25 buses and associated facilities, replaces a temporary carpark on the corner of Watson St and Barry Drive and extends into green space to the west and north in the Turner Parklands.
Other than making a submission as part of the Development Application process (now closed), there has not been any community consultation to review concerns about the loss of parklands and visual amenity, traffic management and safety, noise and fumes associated with this proposal.
There is a child-care centre and seniors centre located directly opposite and residents, businesses, workers, commuters, the ANU north oval, a bike skills track for youngsters, churches, and pedestrians and cyclists using the popular shared pathway would all be impacted. The site connects to the other green corridors in the inner north and should remain protected.
