Improving safety for Perth’s cyclists, school security fence funding and sluggish plans for a South Perth train station drew these comments online last week. Why do South Perth residents have to suffer the effects like the planned "Totem Pole", 400 per cent taller than all the existing buildings, the traffic congestion, four levels of car park above ground? We suffer because the City of South Perth has tunnel vision, which is development at any cost.
- Tori High-density urban environments need cheap, efficient public transport to be effective. The two work as part of a self-reinforcing cycle. You can't just wait until the demand is there. Building a train station will induce more residents and businesses to set up in South Perth. - Amy What a fantastic vision that will resonate with many who would love to ride their bike but at the moment are too afraid to do so. This report really gives both local and state government something to start working on now. - Eugenie Private, religious, schools should buy their own fence - regardless of denomination. Public funding for public schools please. - Peter Baker
