LIBERAL MP Eleni Evangel is taking on bureaucrats inside the WA government to get a 40kmh zone installed outside North Perth primary school.

The public transport authority will only slow traffic on roads that directly abut a school. Because a small park separates busy View Street from the school’s southern frontage it is technically ineligible.

View Street is a popular rat-run between Charles and Fitzgerald Streets and the new state MP for Perth says “common sense” dictates the zoning should go ahead: “I want to make sure that red tape and bureaucracy don’t stand in the way of our children’s safety.”

The MP is organising a petition to send to WA police minister Liza Harvey. Copies are at the school office and Ms Evangel’s HQ at 446 William Street.
