No way out from road closure city
I believe that City of Karratha is not as fitting a name for us as City of Closed Roads.
For many years now we have had non-stop road closures. We can lose access to our roads for many months at a time.
It seems the longer we lose them, when we get them back the roads and the parking bays have shrunk. There are suddenly tiny roads with no room to move (or for trucks) and tremendously reduced parking bay numbers, which are less user-friendly.
I think the architects would be better suited to Legoland as their designs are not suited to real-world usage.
When driving, you will often not even know there is a road closure until you get to the point where the road is closed. It is even possible to go to the shopping centre and try to leave by the same exit 15 minutes later and — road closed.
Need to run a sporting event? No worries, we have roads and we will close them. Should we use a sporting oval, of which we have many? No way.
Want to run any other kind of event? We have roads and we will close them. Why does every event have to be positioned outside the multi-storey building so roads have to be closed? Why not somewhere with room without disrupting the town?
It seems the council is determined that even when you have no interest or intention of participating in their activities, they will involve you. Julie Rosa, Karratha
