In 2005, an average of over 120,000 vehicles travelled through Annandale each dayRTA.
If all these vehicles were the 2010 Holden VE SIDI Commodore Berlina and they travelled just 1km, they would have generated 301g CO2-e(greenguide) each. The total CO2-e equivalent generated by Traffic through Annandale, in just one day, would be 301g*120,000 vehicles =36,120kg.
A Hardwood Tree, such as box, gum or olive, with a 32cm girth stores 17 kg or the CO2-e of 62kg(Tree Carbon Calculator). To be carbon neutral, Annandale would need the equivalent of 582 Trees for each day's traffic!
