Canning Times - - OPINION -

I pre­sented a pe­ti­tion of 1020 sig­na­tures at the Can­ning City Coun­cil meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 17 op­pos­ing a pro­posal by Transperth to di­vert 214 buses a day (one ev­ery three min­utes) from Albany High­way to res­i­den­tial streets.

This mat­ter is set to come be­fore the coun­cil this month.

Imag­ine my amaze­ment the next morn­ing when sur­vey­ing was in progress for what will, if ap­proved, be costly road al­ter­ations and de­struc­tion of bush en­vi­ron­ment.

Has Transperth, through fare rises, got money to spend on what we hope is a fu­tile ex­er­cise be­fore a coun­cil de­ci­sion – or is this a for­gone con­clu­sion? GE­ORGE BEACROFT, Can­ning­ton Editor’s note: The City of Can­ning has a spe­cial coun­cil meet­ing about this mat­ter for Thurs­day, Novem­ber 23 at 6pm.
