I believe I speak on behalf of many residents of Hall Ave, who are of mixed ethnicities, age and marital status. Our street was originally a closed street and has been reopened up again (connecting with Donnell Ave). There has been more houses built (approx. 50) on the street and more people using the street as shortcut from Walmsley road to Robertson road (and vice-versa). This has lead to an influx of traffic coming through. We also have a few schools nearby where children use our street to walk to and from school. With our street being approx. 800m on a straight and quite a wide road combine with the influx of traffic coming through. Motorists are using the street like a highway. There has been many cars using excessive speeds (50+km/h). It has been getting increasingly worse by the day. Our street has also become ideal to boy-racers, revving their vehicles and doing burn-outs (donuts) at night. I fear for the safety of the children and residents of Hall Avenue. I fear for the safety of my own family as we’ve already had a person who was doing burn-outs in front of our house and then crashing through our front fence as my child was about to walk to school. Hearing cars revving their vehicles outside our house only brings back that horrific memory. To prevent any unforeseen accidents and for the safety of the children, residents and motorists themselves. I would like to request a traffic review in the hopes of installing traffic calming measures, such as speed humps and chicanes and making our street safe once again. Yours sincerely A resident on Hall Ave of 25 years
