Get positive

WHEN someone asks a question it usually means they don’t know the answer as was clearly evident when, probably to his surprise, I was able to answer in detail Wayne Monks’ question.

He admits to being enlightened (Admission startling, Stirling Times, December 17) but then proceeds to pretend he already knew the answers.

I can advise that without the involvement of anybody else, my line and interest has always been the safe flow of traffic and other improvements within the Doubleview Commercial Precinct.

Mr Monks purports to want improvement(s) so why balk at adding to his admitted numerous submissions by organising a petition to City of Stirling requesting it revisits the traffic management plan it infamously revoked in December 2011.

Scarborough Beach Road is Stirling’s responsibility so only the council can change it.

Is Mr Monks oblivious to another exciting potential for Doubleview?

A report by the Department of Planning on behalf of WA Planning Commission anticipates Doubleview will become a much sought-after caf� strip similar to other venues around Perth metro.

I envisage that welcome potential to be like City of Vincent’s Scarborough Beach Road Mount Hawthorn strip. What’s required however to complement our section is reinstatement of the City of Stirling’s well-planned, formerly approved project.

The whole reason drivers speed through Doubleview’s strip is because they can, which places pedestrians and cross-traffic at continuous risk.

So let’s get positive and make a real difference to the area that as so much potential.
