Residents draw Council's attention to:

1. Cars constantly speeding at up to 80 kilometres per hour down Macoma Street. In 2013, a car was speeding so fast down this road that it lost control and crashed into the fence of 11 Macoma Street. On a number of occasions residents have witnessed vehicles almost losing control. This is a danger to all residents, pedestrians and other drivers.

2. There are no footpaths on Macoma Street. Residents walk on the road which is very dangerous, especially with cars exceeding speed limits and driving recklessly.

3. Macoma Street is used as an access road for trucks to the industrial area. To access this area, trucks should be using Elliott Road. There is noise at all hours from these trucks (also travelling at high speeds).

Your petitioners therefore request speed bumps, speed limit signs, 'local traffic only' signs and footpaths on Macoma Street, Banyo, for the safety of all residents.
