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,
