If I hear back from the Mayor I will post his reply here.Â In the meantime, please consider emailing or writing to Mr Withers seeking an update. The more pressure we put on theÂ Town of Cambridge the more chance we have of getting our infrastructure.Â Mr Withers can be emailed atÂ email@example.com.
My letter to the Mayor is as follows (please feel to use/adapt if you wish to contact the Council):
Mayor Simon Withers
Town of Cambridge
PO Box 15
FLOREAT WA 6014
Dear Mayor Withers
I am writing to you in respect to the 2010-2011 Perth Bicycle Network Local Government Grants and in particular the grants awarded to the Town of Cambridge as referred to in your Councilâ€™s announcement at http://www.cambridge.wa.gov.au/Home/News/State_boost_for_cycle_paths. Namely, the following grants:
- 1.Jon Sanders Drive Shared Path;
- 2.Pearson Street Shared Path;
- 3.St John of God Bicycle Parking;
- 4.West Coast Highway Recreational Shared Path;
- 5.Legal Signage Program.
Mayor I would like to thank you and your Council staff for the excellent work done to date to complete the West Coast Highway Recreational Shared Path and I personally find it improves my regularly commute along West Coast Drive.
However I note in the posting on the Townâ€™s website that it was stated that all the grants would be completed by April 2011.Â I donâ€™t believe that this is the case, as I have not seen any evidence on progress for example of the Jon Sanders Drive Shared Path.Â As we are now in April 2011 and hence I would appreciate, as I am sure the wider community of cyclists would, a status update on the progress to complete the various works that funding has been provided for.
I look forward to your response and will be updating the readers of Aushiker.com and the members at the Australian Cycling Forums upon receipt.
