V Subramanya, Suffolk Park
Our beloved Council is not renowned for being pedestrian friendly.
On the Main Beach, the small footpath side of the Fishheads cafe, about 60m long and 1m wide gets a lot of pedestrian traffic, including wheelchairs and perambulators.
If the caring councillors visit the scene, they will find more than half the width of the footpath is covered by the front bonnets of vehicles along most of its length. The result is single-file traffic for the pedestrians and that is very difficult and prone to injury caused by sharp edges of vehicles protruding on the footpath.
If only the Council would divert a small amount of funds from the disastrous artistic creations and install a bar across the edge of the footpath so that the bonnets of vehicles do not overhang the footpath – the public might even applaud the efforts of the Council for once.
There is plenty of space for the vehicles to park further back than they do. One would think on these kinds of issues the Council would be proactive on its own.
