Pel­i­can cross­ing for Curtin Ave

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

BEACHGOERS, train users and the an­nual sum­mer flood of teenagers from across Perth will get a con­trolled pel­i­can cross­ing from Cottes­loe train sta­tion across dan­ger­ous Curtin Av­enue to For­rest Street and Cottes­loe Beach.

“This is a good for the town and the re­sult of our staff’s close li­ai­son with Main Roads,” Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

A pel­i­can cross­ing is a pedes­trian cross­ing with traf­fic lights op­er­ated by pedes­tri­ans.

The coun­cil has been talk­ing to Main Roads WA, Cottes­loe MLA Colin Bar­nett and the Depart­ment of Trans­port since De­cem­ber last year af­ter res­i­dents’ re­quests and a pe­ti­tion calling for a cross­ing.

A pel­i­can cross­ing will help stop this kind of close shave.
