The Fremantle Gazette has discovered cycling it seems late in 2017 with a series of articles on the topic. A great thing really as the more talking about cycling will hopefully lead to more people riding bicycles. Anyway moving on to the article it is good to see the councillors from Claremont, Mosman Park, Cottesloe, Nedlands and Fremantle getting together to lobby for the earlier than planned extension of the Fremantle to Perth Principal Shared Path [PSP] from where it now ends at Grant Street Station in Swanbourne through to Tydeman Road in North Fremantle.
Of course the elephant in the room, the crossing of Tydeman Road does not get a mention nor does the crossing of the Swan River. This is where our Labour members of Parliament, Ms Simone McGurk [State] and Mr Josh Wilson [Federal] really need to step up and start working on behalf of their constituents to have this matter resolved. My last contact with Ms McGurk was fibbed off with the response, “funding.”
Back to the completion of the PSP to North Fremantle, lets hope this lobby group, Perth to Port Bike and Walk has some success moving this project forward.
