Don’t even get me started. Yes it’s difficult to cross and I’m not sure why that’s surprising - it’s a ******* main road in and out of the city from the north. Just like Scarborough beach road it should of been widened years ago and an island down the middle to allow pedestrians to cross safely - there is the land there that they could use so it’s obviously been in the plans somewhere but it’s just never happened. Our local member is all about appeasing any locals that even look like having a whinge in his electorate and this is one of those things - I believe he pledged $250k to this project (eyeroll), which I don’t think would even cover a crossing which would be ludicrous anyway. I have no clue whatsoever what they think they can put there other than a few extra large traffic humps similar to what they did in Fitzgerald street which would at least slow the traffic down. The thing is, Charles street is a main roads department issue, I don’t think Fitzgerald street was.Did you see that article in the local paper (not The West Aus) about a forum on the 15th to discuss ways to make crossing Charles st safer/better?
I personally don't and have never (even as a child) had an issue with crossing it.
Last month the secure neighbourhood forum, this month “crossing Charles” next month......
