Poorly timed CBD road works

South Western Times - - Point Of View - Ross Slater, Bun­bury

The Bun­bury City Coun­cil ap­pears to be on a dif­fer­ent fre­quency to the real world.

Amid trade down­turn and re­cent park­ing me­ter sagas, the coun­cil de­cided to al­low half the CBD roads to be blocked off around mid­day on a re­cent sunny spring Sun­day.

Not con­tent with reg­u­larly clos­ing off the City’s lim­ited ar­ter­ies in an at­tempt to at­tract vis­i­tors and clut­ter­ing Blair Street and Ocean Drive verges with twin­kling ad­ver­tis­ing trail­ers re­mind­ing pet own­ers that cat and dog reg­is­tra­tions are due, some­body, lit up by an­other bright idea, thought it a grand plan if road and round-a-bout im­prove- ments were car­ried out in the main street, on a busy week­end.

It’s dif­fi­cult enough now for vis­i­tors to me­an­der, out of their way to fre­quent Bun­bury’s city cen­tre with­out suf­fer­ing con­fu­sion and frus­tra­tion due to in­com­pe­tence.
