PERHAPS the City of Stirling is right to start clamping down more tightly on builders’ uses of verges because of various detriments which builders cause.
For example, here in the City of Gosnells we have recurring problems with the likes of irresponsible builders blocking footpaths for excessive periods, including leaving them blocked for successive weekends.
The City has had instances where aggressive builders have fenced out to the kerb line and thereby caused pedestrians to mix with vehicles on the carriageways.
These builders should plan better to minimise the detriments to others rather than just expressing their greed and contempt. ALF CAMPBELL, Kenwick
