RESIDENTS are concerned traffic will become even more congested along Geelong Road when the junior campus of Damascus College relocates next year.Years 7 and 8 will join senior year levels at the Mt Clear campus at the start of the 2011 school year, with about 400 students to make the shift.There are fears that with the vast increase in student numbers, the already traffic-plagued road will become even worse.Online comments on The Courier website show residents are worried about more traffic when the school year begins."So I'm going to have to leave at 8.15 to drive 6km to be at school by 8.55," posted Sharon."Just what we need ? another thousand odd people on the Geelong Road each morning," another reader posted.But both the Labor and Liberal candidates for Ballarat East say the planned works will solve the problem.Labor has committed $8 million to the project and the Coalition has promised $4.5 million. The pledges come after $2.6 million was set aside in the budget. Liberal candidate for Ballarat East Ben Taylor said his party's promise of $4.5 million would be sufficient, but said the decision from the government was way overdue."They have had 11 years to fix this and they are waiting until now to do something," he said."I don't know where they got their figures ($8 million) from, but I have been assured our pledge is enough."Ballarat East MLA Geoff Howard said the first part of works would begin early next year at Whitehorse Road.
