Still no path to bus stops

No path, just rubble.

The issue of people pushing prams through dirt to get to a bus stop near Jindowie estate has been raised at several Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association (TRYRA) meetings.

On March 23, secretary Lorraine Jackson said TRYRA had received information from Cr Linda Aitken that the City of Wanneroo had no immediate plans to install footpaths.

�There�s no footpath whatsoever; it�s just rubble; it�s filthy,� Ms Jackson said. �When they put the traffic lights in, they will have to do something with the footpaths.�

One resident asked if the City didn�t have a policy to install footpaths before people moved into development areas.

�You see young girls pushing prams through the sand,� he said.

Cr Aitken said developers were supposed to install paths.

Ms Jackson said the City said it would upgrade nine bus stops a year, and TRYRA had written to the Public Transport Authority, calling it a safety issue.

Cr Aitken said for the upgrades to bring bus stops up to disability standards, the PTA would provide the hardstands and the City would complete the paths to them.

�Contact the PTA to request they upgrade the bus stop,� she said.

Jane Senior said access was an issue for people with a disability as well as parents pushing prams and seniors. �At the moment if there was anybody in Jindowie who wanted to use the bus stop, they cannot do it,� she said.

The next TRYRA meeting will be held on April 27 at Capricorn Community House in Yanchep, from 7.30pm.
