South Perth MLA John McGrath said he had been approached by a number of Manning and Salter Point residents concerned at the positioning of the new bus stops. This follows a review of bus routes in the area.
“I will be making representation to the Minister for Transport on their behalf,” he said.
“Residents are clearly upset that there has not been any consultation.
“I have visited each of the sites in question and there does appear to be some safety issues, in particular with the moving of the bus stop from Gentilli Way around the corner and into Mount Henry Road.
Mount Henry Road is very busy and when the bus stops, in both directions, it holds up traffic approaching or coming through the roundabout at Gentilli Way.
“Also, the residents now do not have street parking due to the roundabout and the two new bus stops” Mr McGrath said.
