Dis­abil­ity ac­cess for view­ing plat­form

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

The City of South Perth will spend $125,000 to mod­ify a view­ing plat­form for dis­abil­ity ac­cess af­ter it was passed at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing.

The work will be funded from the City’s ex­pected sur­plus, as it had not been bud­geted for in the 2014-15 in­fra­struc­ture cap­i­tal works pro­gram.

The plat­form at Sir James Mitchell Park was com­pleted dur­ing the 2009-10 fi­nan­cial year.

It was built with an open grat­ing for wave ac­tion. How­ever, af­ter a com­plaint about dis­abil­ity ac­cess and a re­view by the City’s in­clu­sive com­mu­nity ac­tion group, it was de­cided that the plat­form needed to be mod­i­fied.
