well it looks like it's well and truly underway now, they're either building dikes around the entire site or just building a long sound barrier

And now they've spruced up the mounds of dirt with some large palm trees

According to this week's The Bunyip Newspaper the developer of St Yves are proposing a roundabout on Horrocks Highway and the main road will have speed limit reduced too.

A roundabout seems like both overkill and a bit late considering that the works to provide turning lanes is almost complete.

The speed limit change is probably to be expected, as it is everywhere else that new urban development arises.

In the news article they do mention there are two proposed entrance points into the new estate

Looooong time lurker on this page... finally have a reason to post. Family member has bought in the St Yves estate.

From what they have been told by their sales agent ( who actually works for the developer) that roundabout has nothing to do with them, and they constructed their intersection as they were told to when the whole area got approved.

St Yves has an intersection already almost built. Hickinbotham altered their turn into their development to the roundabout after construction on the St Yves site had already started. Seems a bit silly as surely the council should look at all the developments together to make sure they are all in alignment with roads etc. and the whole area, but what do I know lol.

Disgusting. The antithesis of modern planning - lessons learnt from 2020 (and any other modern planning theory) obviously not being applied.

Contracts and approvals for this should be torn up and thrown in the fire.

There's some fanciful advertising on that web page - especially the video. I don't think I spotted a single image of Buckland Park in it, especially not in summer with the lush green grass. I assume the "lakefront sanctuary" refers to when the flood plain fills with overflow from the river.

I guess the proof will be in whether anybody buys the hype and builds a house there.
