Starkey Street Safety upgraded with more crossings

The road race track we call Starkey street is being upgraded with more crossings.

No longer will pedestrians have to walk to a crossing as soon there will be one every 10m along the length of Starkey street.

Convenient traffic lights will help to slow the traffic before it gets to one of the projected 300 crossings.

Given that many drivers mount the curb in Tralee Ave and have repeatedly smashed the fence one wonders if all of this visual distraction will help or hinder.

4G congestion in Killarney to be resolved, no 5G yet

Work is underway to upgrade 4G cellular coverage in Killarney Heights. Note that this is not a 5G upgrade but rather extra 4G capacity running on the low 700MHz band.

The upgrade was prompted by congestion on the existing 4G in our area.

Le blog de Killarney passe au français

Il est clair que la banlieue parle maintenant principalement la belle langue française et naturellement ce blog changera afin de répondre aux demandes de notre public.

mon aéroglisseur est plein d'anguilles.

That's handy!

Suburb of Swingers - Killarney Heights other side

An interesting new trend is emerging in our suburb. It seems that there are many swingers living here. I present the following evidence.

Killarney homes now so expensive even real estate agent living in van

Now that we finally have a decent local hospital, the prices of Killarney Heights homes has shot up such that even successful local real estate agents can't afford to live here.

One agent, who we'll refer to as "Brian", has resorted to living out of a van and is often seen parking in the local Killarney shops.

While the van looks relatively luxurious it's probably not ideal for a chap of his standing.

"Brian" we wish you well and hope that you can earn enough of a commission on each sale to one day save up and buy a real home where you can truely relax and not worry about finding public toilets that can be used as a dump point.

Historic Bini shell building set for upgrade

The beloved Bini shell structure at Killarney Heights Public school - obviously the inspiration for the Sydney Opera House - is slated for an upgrade.

The concrete building has stood the test of time, well, except for a few leaks when it rains, and used to be used as a voting place by local lovers of democracy and Liberals.

The new building bares only a slight resemblance to the original but it's hoped that after a few years the hard edges will wear off and the much loved round shape will emerge.

Presumably it will be fitted out with bright orange light fittings and the conversation pit will be once again put to good use.


The Bini shell is no more. It still exists in the arial view on Apple Maps though, at least for now.
