NO ONE disputes Kellyville netball court has been the scene of traffic chaos this year, but Baulkham Hills Shire Netball Association asks everyone to be patient a little longer because a lot is happening behind the scenes.
"The Hills Council agreed last year to pay for half of the new toilet block," association president Jenny Pike said.
"They are also going to help us redesign our car park, so we can extend our boundary fencing and provide more parking on-site and, hopefully, they will help us get more courts.
"Phasing of the traffic lights on the Withers [Road]/Wellgate [Avenue] intersection has helped a lot.
"Hopefully when we start again in April, we'll have our access to the rear through [council's] new [Grey Gum] estate."
According to council's June 17 Local Traffic Committee report, Wellgate — the rear access to which she referred — was to have re-opened permanently at the end of August as secondary access for the netball court's car park.
It remains closed for major construction work to be carried out in the estate, which will comprise 83 residential lots when completed.
On a typical weekend, 5000 netball players and spectators attend the courts, which are leased by Baulkham Hills Shire Netball Association — the fourth largest netball association in NSW.
