SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET HURT ON BRIDGE
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.
