The Charleston Neighbourhood Association wanted the city council to ban U-turns being made at the Ensors Rd and Sullivan Ave intersection due to several heavy vehicle truck and trailers from the nearby Fulton Hogan Quarry Depot making the turns they didn’t think “was right.” Neighbourhood association chairman John Hoskin said they decided to ask the city council for something to be done after residents raised concerns. “Some residents noticed the trucks and trailers were doing U-turns on the road, we didn’t think it was right for them to be taking up four lanes of traffic,” Mr Hoskin said. But the Linwood-Central- Heathcote Community Board decided not to ban U-turns after receiving a report from city council staff on the issue. Community board member Alexandra Davids said it would possibly direct trucks to use the suburban streets. “That was something we wanted to avoid,” Ms Davids said. Instead, the community board decided to restrict parking outside 133 Ensors Rd to help improve safety for heavy vehicles from the Fulton Hogan Quarry Depot entering and existing the site. Yellow lines will be put in at a cost of $100, taking away five kerbside car parks. •Turn to page 4 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
