Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

MANY res­i­dents in South Perth are fed up with the es­ca­lat­ing con­ges­tion on their lo­cal streets and thor­ough­fares.

The Can­ning Bridge area in par­tic­u­lar has be­come night­mar­ish for travel at peak hours.

One of the first reme­dies to the Can­ning Bridge prob­lem would be to build the new ramp from Man­ning Road to the free­way south.

This is an op­por­tu­nity for our fed­eral po­lit­i­cal par­ties to make at least some fund­ing com­mit­ment to im­prove the South Perth area.

Al­ter­na­tively, is it be­cause we are in a safe Lib­eral elec­torate that “in­vest­ment” in South Perth is seen to be “wasted”?

We would look for­ward to each po­lit­i­cal party pub­li­cis­ing their pol­icy on fund­ing the Man­ning Road­free­way south ramp. CE­CILIA BROOKE, chair­woman, City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion.
