Rokeby Road busi­ness own­ers say the two-day road clo­sure, pedes­trian bar­ri­cades, turn-away signs and empty tents left overnight from Mar­kets on Rokeby has dam­aged night-time trade.

Oh dear. Here we go. Some­one tries an event to stim­u­late Su­bi­aco be­cause busi­ness has been com­plain­ing about the de­cline and now busi­ness is still com­plain­ing.

Idiots! If any­thing, Rokeby Road should be closed per­ma­nently to car traf­fic. Ex­cept per­haps taxis and buses. The en­tirety of Europe runs this way. - Bill May­hem Not even re­motely sur­prised.

I am a Su­bi­aco res­i­dent and I would like to know why the shopown­ers don’t open their shops when peo­ple want to eat. We went for din­ner at 6pm on Sun­day and the par­tic­u­lar venue we wanted to eat at was closed.

I hate to say it, but Su­bi­aco is dy­ing com­pared to likes of Leed­erville and Mt Law­ley. Do some­thing Su­bi­aco. Be­come in­ter­est­ing. - Daniel Nunn Let’s sup­port Subi.
