Narellan Road not enough: find other routes

Narellan Road upgrade is great but it still isn't going to cope. When are they going to look outside the square?

The population in Macarthur is exploding. It's obvious there needs to be alternatives to get to the expressway and Campbelltown instead of Narellan Road.

The only way to Campbelltown for most of east/west Macarthur at the moment is funnelling through Narellan Road so there needs to be more alternatives.

There are two other options: open up Glenlee Road in Spring Farm to the expressway (or to Menangle Road) plus connect Gregory Hills Drive then Donovan Boulevard to Badgally Road to ease the volume.

It's obvious that these changes need to happen.

Guide Dogs grateful

I am writing on behalf of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT to thank our loyal supporters in and around Wollondilly for their ongoing patronage of our organisation.

I am in no doubt that this support has contributed to Guide Dogs being voted Australia's most trusted charity for the second year running in the Reader's Digest Most Trusted Brands poll.

Over the next 10 years it's predicted that at least 700 guide dogs will need to be trained to keep up with the growing demand from NSW and ACT residents who are blind or vision-impaired, at a staggering cost of over $25 million.

We receive less than one per cent in government funding, so it is the generosity and trust of residents of Wollondilly that will make this possible.

Again, on behalf of Guide Dogs, I would like to thank the people of Wollondilly for their continued support.

Don't raise speed limit

I usually avoid driving on highways but on Sunday I decided to take the Hume Motorway after reading about a proposal to increase the speed limit from 110km/h to 120km/h.

What a disaster. Cars and trucks were flying past me.

Speed limits are there as a guide, not as a hard and fast rule to be observed rain, hail or shine.

If the speed limit is increased it will just encourage people to drive even faster.
