Regent Waters Estate - say NO to the closure of Ocean Reef Road entry sign now

Further to three separate trials last year and resident consultation, the City of Wanneroo intend to close the access to Regent Waters Estate from Ocean Reef Road by the end of August 2010.

This is despite last years study proving this option was the least favoured of the three trials and not an option even recommended as a result of the consultation.

They are proposing it will be in place for 15 months.

The Council initially planned to follow the recommendation of the consultation and close James Spiers Drive/Scenic Drive.

It appears the Council has been influenced by residents living North of the Estate who like to cut through the estate to gain access to Ocean Reef Road and agreed unanimously at a meeting on the 1st June 2010 to the closure at Ocean Reef Road instead.

A lot of rate payers money has been spent on conducting last years trials and surveys. The Council are about to disregard the recommendations of the study and, more importantly the views of the residents living in Regent Waters.

There are nearly 500 houses on our estate. How will this inconvenience affect our homes value?

There are two mobile businesses that operate at this junction. How will this closure effect them?

Please sign this petition if you DISAGREE with the City of Wanneroo closing the access to Backshall Place from Ocean Reef Road.

Signatures will be handed to Mayor Jon Kelly at the end of June, so please dont delay.

Thank you.

Jon Kelly, Mayor of Wanneroo (9405 54111)
Daniel Simms, Chief Executive Officer, City of Wanneroo (9405 5000)

    How does this benefit, or make it any safer to access ocean reef Rd? I live in Tyne Cr and use this access & egress every day & will be very inconvenient. Totally against this proposal.

    Make the James Spiers rd connection with Scenic Drive a one direction road into the estate only. This will stop traffic bypassing the Ocean Reef/Wanneroo rd intersection. Or close the connection as per the proposal with access to Wanneroo rd via Villanova

    Any concerns regarding more traffic at Ocean reef rd and wanneroo road intersection are plain stupid...Why do you think the council spent millions recently to upgrade the intersection with more turning lanes, high lights, and non slip surfaces ???? to mak

    This petition is a waste of time you had your chance to come up with a solution that suited ALL residents but did too little too late. I live on the "busy" part of James Spiers and really don't care about your inconveniences I care about the 3000 cars a d

    We have elderly parents and Ocean Reef is the best access to get to them in a hurry. Closing the Ocean Reef Road access slows down response time for Ambulance, Police, Fire as if the roads are not narrow enough.

    As a resident of Regent Waters the coucils proposed option has a more detrimental impact on the residents of Regent Waters leaving the estate trying to access Ocean Reef Road traveling west . Your proposed option will only cause more traffic congestion fo

    Absolutely uncalled for. This all started due to Backshall being opened up when the second part of Regent Waters was completed. It should have been closed again. When this didn't happen and council was approached this issue became lost and then hijacked b

    This closer will only create an increased traffic flow onto Wanneroo Rd via the Ocean Reef Rd turn off. The set of lights is already a 'black spot' intersection!!!!!!!!!
  • 25 May 2015182. Murray Leoniej
    This is not what was recomended.Do not close O/R Backshall northbound entry to Regent Waters. This will not solve excess traffic along Tyne & James Spiers will just make a more dangerous exit to O/R rd. If council can not get it right do nothing!

    The whole idea of these trials was to reduse the traffic flow from the residents of northern Wanneroo. Not to affect the Regent waters residents entering homes.
