Bridge Capacity: Narrows

IN answer to Mario Nardi in last week’s Gazette, the Narrows Bridge did not fail.

It reached capacity.

Therefore, in 2001 it was “duplicated,” or doubled in capacity. Now it has reached capacity again on weekdays.

According to Mario, it should never have been built, so what should have happened?

Let people swim? Wait for a ferry? Hire a helicopter? Go by way of the Causeway?

How crowded would that be by now?

Go over Canning Bridge and Stirling Bridge? No, on reflection, this would not be possible, because if all people were like Mario, these bridges would not have been built either, in case they attracted more people, like Mario said Roe 8 would do.

Mario, what would WA be like without bridges and roads?
