Foot­paths and na­ture strips were our top­ics last week. Here are three ar­eas that need ur­gent at­ten­tion. Our cur­rent topic is play­grounds. Visit our web­site to see how you can nom­i­nate.

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FRONT PAGE -

FOOT­PATHS and walk­ways at Rooty Hill and Wha­lan have topped the list of trou­ble spots se­lected by read­ers in NewsLo­cal’s Neigh­bour­hood Res­cue cam­paign.

The cam­paign asked you to nom­i­nate and vote, via our web­site, on sites need­ing ur­gent at­ten­tion.

Res­i­dents have made com­plaints about Brus­sels Cres at Rooty Hill, where the path with large raised sec­tions has been caus­ing peo­ple to trip. At nearby John St, the lack of a paved path is prov­ing dan­ger­ous for many res­i­dents.

At Wha­lan, the laneway be­tween Ku­rama Cres and Bel­more Ave, steel pipes are stick­ing out of the foot­path.

Black­town Coun­cil is re­spon­si­ble for each of these cases. A spokes­woman thanked res­i­dents for high­light­ing the is­sues.

We will let you know how things are pro­gress­ing in fu­ture edi­tions.

The Neigh­bour­hood Res­cue cam­paign aims to solve prob­lems and im­prove life in our sub­urbs.

The next topic we will be fo­cus­ing on is play­grounds. We want to hear from you about where there is a need for re­pairs or rec­ti­fi­ca­tion of prob­lems in our streets.
