Shel­ter set­back af­ter com­plaint

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
