"Odd place to live"

This is a really weird street. It's cut off from the rest of the suburb - and any other residential areas for miles - by highways in two directions and parks in the third. Most of the street is commercial (including DFO) and industrial - which is fine, but if you live in one of the apartment blocks you are just being a human air filter for all the car fumes. There is literally a massive smoke vent from the M4 tunnel on the road itself. And you can't really get anywhere without crossing either an arterial road or a huge expanse of grass. Unless you are driving to DFO, It's really just a very long on-ramp from Parramatta Road to Homebush Bay Drive. Very odd place to live.

"Noisy, Noisy Street"

We lived in Underwood Rd for 10 years, before, during and after the 2000 Olympic Games.
The local govt has spent lots of money on beautifying the street and surrounding area which is wonderful but they can't do anything about the thousands of trucks and cars which rumble down the street all day and night. The trucks would start flying down our street at about 4.30 each morning and not stop until about 9.30 each night. The weekends were a little better but then we had all the people driving to the Olympic Park and Bicentennial park for picnics etc. It was not uncommen for us to have trucks parked across our driveway at any hour of the day or night as the truckies stopped to buy a burger or to have a nap, it drove me crazy when I would go to take the kids to school and there was a huge big rig parked across the driveway with no sign of the driver. It is perhaps not a bad street if you lived in a townhouse at the back of the block otherwise a very noisy place to live.
