The loose metal access road to the Cornwallis Wharf car park sends dust clouds over nearby housing. A typical summer weekend day has the lower parking area full with over 20-30 cars. The overflow upper grass area has at least 15 car plus trailer rigs 15 more cars. Dust clouds are formed from cars struggling for traction. The dust aggravates local asthma sufferers, pollutes our roof drinking water supplies, imprisons residents on fine days, fills homes with dust within 2 hours covering every surface with a layer of dust, rain run-off from the road is a nasty sludge that runs unfiltered into the harbour, hoons use the loose metal to practice rally driving, its a slip hazard to the numerous walkers accessing the beach and wharf, boat trailer users in the upper car park actually use the road twice per visit to launch and retrieve.
