PERTH commuters are getting to work late because of a new bus stop built behind trees and three metres from the road.
A Voice reader and commuter describes the positioning of the Lord Street bus stop as a joke: “It’s ridiculous,” she says. “If you sit at the bus stop you can’t see a thing coming, only traffic whizzing past you. How are you meant to hail a bus if you can’t see it?”
Vincent city council CEO Len Kosova says the stop, near the Guildford Road intersection, was installed three weeks ago: “The trees have grown back since it was cleared for a property development,” he says. “The city will cut the trees back so the bus stop is not obscured.”
