Street beg­gars

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

Edi­tor,

Thank you for your editorial on street beg­gars [KMN, Fe­bru­ary 8].

I won­der if you have seen the new bus timetable for Porirua East. The map shows a new bus stop out­side the Hous­ing Corp Build­ing on Lyt­tel­ton Ave.

I guess the only way to get to this bus stop from the town cen­tre will be through the lit­tle sub­way un­der the road.

I do not think this sub­way is well lit and could be dan­ger­ous for older peo­ple like my­self to use as I ex­pect the ‘‘beg­gars’’ will be us­ing this to in­tim­i­date us. They will prob­a­bly be ask­ing for money so they can go to McDon­ald’s, which is close to this area.

I did men­tion this prob­lem when the pro­posed changes were shown to us in Fe­bru­ary, 2010, but I don’t think the peo­ple who make these changes have ever used a bus in Porirua. Mar­garet Clark,

Porirua
