A PE­TI­TION with 109 sig­na­tures op­pos­ing the clo­sure of Nid­jalla Loop at the in­ter­sec­tion of Al­fred Road in Swan­bourne for two years was pre­sented to Nedlands coun­cil last week. Narla Road res­i­dent Shane McLay said road safety was their pri­or­ity and that Swan­bourne Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Lin­coln Day was the first sig­na­tory. Nid­jalla Loop res­i­dent John Grop­poli said the pe­ti­tion arose from the Town of Clare­mont’s fail­ure to men­tion the clo­sure was tem­po­rary. “It is to­tally un­ac­cept­able for our safety con­cerns to be over­rid­den by the Clare­mont coun­cil’s sug­ges­tion that we want to pre­serve our prop­erty value,” he said. Nedlands coun­cil will con­sider the road clo­sure next month.
