ANGST over plans to redevelop Charles Street is a storm in a teacup, Mt Lawley MP Michael Sutherland says.
The Barnett government says its $31 million widening and bus lane project will cut an average of six minutes off a daily bus trip for about 16,000 passengers.
It’s been dubbed an “urban design disaster” by locals Geraldine Box and Andrew Main who’ve distributed hundreds of flyers around the neighbourhood,.
Mr Sutherland says he hasn’t heard a single complaint, despite his name and number being on the flyer as a contact: “I never got a single person contact me, — Eleni [Evangel, Perth MP] hasn’t either. It might be another problem that’s not a problem,” Mr Sutherland told the Voice. “Is it another first world problem? It’s another one of these things, — you live in the inner city, you want all the inner city facilities, but you don’t want any change.”
