Nalder at cross­roads

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

TRANS­PORT Min­is­ter Dean Nalder has asked for ad­vice from Main Roads about plans for Brear­ley Av­enue fol­low­ing the City of Bel­mont elec­tors’ meet­ing last month.

The meet­ing passed a mo­tion 35-4 call­ing on the City of Bel­mont to re­view keep­ing the road open be­tween Great Eastern High­way and First Street.

It also called on the coun­cil to “write forth­with” to Mr Nalder, re­quest­ing that he re­view the pro­posed clo­sure and keep part of it open as a lo­cal road to serve the com­mu­nity.

The coun­cil will con­sider the mo­tion at its May 24 meet­ing.

“I am aware of the res­o­lu­tions car­ried at the spe­cial elec­tors meet­ing and I have re­quested ad­vice from Main Roads,” Mr Nalder said.

“The Mem­ber for Bel­mont, Glenys God­frey, has been mak­ing me aware of the views of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and seek­ing a res­o­lu­tion on their be­half.

“She has cer­tainly been mak­ing sure I un­der­stand their con­cerns and I will be seek­ing fur­ther ad­vice on this.”
