M7 upgrade .
M7 road upgrade,
This upgrade will affect not only the local traffic that has been impacted by all the heavy vehicle traffic bypassing the M7, using Wallgrove Road north to the M4 and south to Elizabeth Drive.
Firstly Wallgrove Rd from M4 to Wonderland Dr to Old Wallgrove Rd and Mini Link Rd, all heavy vehicle traffic in and out of this area blocks local traffic on Wallgrove Rd to no end ,backing up to M4 . The small section of road from Wonderland Dr to Mini Link that is Hannibal St , should have been complete . This missing link which is there in its original form as a road just blocked off stops the heavy vehicles from bypassing Wallgrove Rd and going straight into Old Wallgrove Rd and onto the M7 .Which in turn blocks Wallgrove Rd. From previous history during the construction of the M7 local residents and traffic was back up for long periods, now due to all the extra industrial traffic it will be a night mare as there is no other way around this other then Mamre Rd which is also under road works.
Second, due to the traffic on the M7 it is a parking lot more often then not. During the afternoons most heavy vehicles heading south use Wallgrove Rd to Elizabeth Dr . Again the traffic is heavy and slow with Heavy vehicle pushing their way.
Horsley Pk community has 2 schools on and near the Wallgrove Rd Horsley Dr intersection and a new high school just built bring more local traffic ,with all this heavy vehicle traffic on Wallgrove Rd and possible more likely extra traffic due to M7 road works the speed limit on Wallgrove road from Redmayne Rd to Cobham St should be reduced to 60 Kms.
I would also like to address due to all the traffic being generated by Airport and New Industrial area feeding onto Wallgrove Rd and M7. The completion or upgrade of Archbold Rd ,M4 bridge to on and off east bound feeding into industrial estate onto Lenore Dr ,would also remove most of the heavy vehicle traffic from Wallgrove Rd. This also would intern would take much unwanted heavy vehicle traffic from Erskine Park Rd ,a residential area .
