We’ve received the following photographs from a very frustrated resident. These shots were taken today (25th June) at 1.00pm.

This first photograph shows Neerim/Kokaribb Streets, Carnegie. There is:

  • no warning sign to indicate the closure of Kokaribb Street and,
  • all cars forced to detour via the shopping centre car park. Great for shoppers!


The second photograph shows:

  • pedestrian access blocked
  • construction trucks and witches hats taking over car parking spots
  • thus we have a situation where shoppers, pedestrians, and traffic is all caught up in the snarl of cars making u-turns because of unannounced street closure.



  • can’t council co-ordinate street closures and traffic better than this?
  • what does this do to local traders? or,
  • do developers get top priority in Glen Eira?

PS: We’ve received another photo from a different resident. This time the shot was taken at 7am yesterday morning. Readers, please note the number of car parking spots that are taken up by trucks and contractors and undoubtedly staying there all day. Who would want to be a trader in this vicinity now?
