Shelter setback after complaint
A BUS shelter that was installed in the middle of a footpath has been relocated, after at least one resident complained to the Town of Cambridge.
Chief executive Jason Buckley said the Public Transport Authority installed the bus shelter on Templetonia Avenue in City Beach, as part of their program to make all bus shelters in the Perth metropolitan area disability-compliant.
"This shelter replaced one that was considered sub-standard,” Mr Buckley said.
“The new shelter has a larger roof overhang, so it was necessary to set it further back from the road than the old shelter, resulting in it intruding into the footpath area.
"Although the PTA are of the view that the current location is deemed acceptable given it is a footpath, not a shared path (cycleway) and a minimum of 1200mm space is available around the shelter, they have agreed to relocate it back to the property boundary…”
It was moved on Friday.
Before and after: the bus shelter relocated to the boundary.
