Pipes for Freo

 

The Pipes for Fremantle project by the Water Corporation is ahead of schedule and that means the Cappuccino Strip will open this Saturday at the end of business.

Resurfacing is currently happening so the northbound lane remains closed until Saturday evening.

FREO STRIP BAD ROADWORK PLANNING

Posted in fremantle by freoview on October 2, 2012

I know nothing about public works or road work, so I stand to be corrected. But can anyone at the City of Fremantle explain why the pavers at the intersection of South Terrace and Market Street were ripped out, then had to be replaced with 50 metres of bitumen for only three days and that bitumen was removed again today to make way for new pavers.

Would not good planning mean to know one will not get the new paving done before the long weekend and leave the old pavers there till they can be replaced after the weekend? Why dig it up and then hastily replace it very temporarily with bitumen for just three days? How much more does this cost the City?

SHE’LL BE RIGHT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR FREMANTLE!

Posted in fremantle by freoview on June 4, 2012

The photos below show what happened at Bathers Beach yesterday, when the city was packed with visitors on the long weekend W.A. Day. People had made their own decisions and decided it was not good enough that the City of Fremantle keeps blocking the foot and bicycle path to the Round House, and opened the gates themselves.

It’s not something I condone, as it now invited people to enter a construction site with heavy equipment and unsafe road surfaces. But I do understand the immense frustration of those who do their daily walk and bike ride there, and the local businesses who want to capitalise on the additional visitors to Fremantle. Imagine having paid good money for hiring a Kidogo Art House gallery space and no one can get there. What a waste of money and effort that would be.

I am sure that with the right organisation and application, and a wee bit more effort and elbow grease, this problem could be solved within just a few hours. She’ll be right just is not good enough!
