Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

OUR first walk over the bridge was an ed­u­ca­tion.

Nearly hit twice by vir­tu­ally out of con­trol bikes as we ap­proached from the west.

The hill down from the bridge is quite steep and the bikes get up quite a speed, even if they don’t in­tend to and then the shared path nar­rows.

On the east side, we walked down the lane be­tween the restau­rants and nearly got wiped out by a speed­ing bike that had crossed from the west.

Mea­sures need to be in­tro­duced at both ends of the bridge to pro­tect pedes­tri­ans from speed­ing bikes or some­one will get hurt or killed (prob­a­bly a pedes­trian).

The fact that ev­ery day work­men are needed to re­move graf­fiti from the area where it is in­tended to dis­play art worth $350,000 makes that in­ten­tion ques­tion­able.

I sug­gest the idea be dropped. The new bridge is a great as­set for Man­durah and those of us who live on the west side should ex­press our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to those who changed the sched­ule so that we would have un­in­ter­rupted ac­cess while the old bridge is de­mol­ished. JILL AND JOHN RAN­DALL, Halls Head.
