Congestion fears for Lord St if 24-hour servo built

Congestion fears for Lord St if 24-hour servo built

TWO drive-through fast food outlets and a 24-hour service station could be built off Lord Street in Dayton if a proposal is approved by the City of Swan.

The proposal, which closes for public consultation on Friday, is for a 7-Eleven petrol station, Hungry Jacks and KFC.

Brabham resident Madi Pearce said if the application went ahead it would create further congestion on an already busy road.

“I really hope this proposal does not go ahead. Lord Street is already busy enough, with stand-still traffic in the mornings and afternoons,” she said.

“With all the residential estates that are now on Lord Street and adding a petrol station and fast food outlets, it will be even more of a nightmare. There are already plenty of fast food outlets and petrol stations within a 5km radius.”
