No complaints: Telstra
TELSTRA says it has had no complaints about accessibility at a building it owns on Angelo Street, South Perth.
Earlier this month, South Perth resident Ros Harman told the Gazette she was shocked that several of the older buildings along Angelo Street had no access for those with disabilities.
The 52-year-old has multiple sclerosis and has used a wheelchair for the past eight years.
She said the post office on Angelo Street affected her the most and a neighbour had to take care of her postal needs.
Australia Post occupies the building but does not own it. It said its accessibility plan highlighted its commitment to taking a lead role in improving accessibility.
A Telstra spokesman said the building was old and they had no record of any complaints regarding access.
“Telstra is very proud of its record in supporting both staff and customers with disabilities and our approach is governed by our sixth disability action plan which is the result of ongoing consultation with key disability consumer bodies and organisations,” he said.
