Goodwood Junction Update

The Goodwood Junction Development is before the State Governments Development Assessment Commission (DAC) awaiting approval.

As part of the DAC process a Public Notification period will be seeking public comments by Thursday 6 September 2012.

Project Manager Mr Rossi, on behalf of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has indicated they already door knocked the residences on each side of the project’s rail corridor. He believes overall the project has been well received. The key issues raised including vegetation and landscaping; construction impacts (including local road access); fencing; and extension of the Marino Rocks Greenways shared use path.
I have to say I am most surprised at such revelation.

In our discussions with locals affected by the project indicate that this claim is not so. I am surprised that there is no mention of concerns over the location of the works depot, or the impact that the Brownhill Creek stormwater project will have on this project and/or vice versa.

Needless to say I less than convinced about the claims DPTI is making.

Having said that Jennie and I are hopeful of attending an on site meeting with key members of the project management team, at which we will reinforce the concerns being expressed to us by you and your neighbours. We await confirmation of this and will reiterate the need for a public meeting that we thought was promised by DPTI.
