The development proposes to provide a total of 383 car parking spaces over three basement levels and ground level, with 337 spaces for independent living unit use and 46 spaces for the residential care use.Statements from  the Transport Impact Statement Conclusion should be noted:

  • The site is expected to generate up to 77 vehicle movements in any peak hour.
  • Even without the additional traffic from the development, upgrades are required at Old Northern Roads intersection with New Line Road, Quarry Road and Vineys Road to accommodate the anticipated 2028 traffic volumes.
  • Once the intersections are upgraded with the required upgrades, the additional traffic from the proposed development is expected to have a negligible impact on these intersections.
