The absence of a pedestrian footpath combined with uneven terrain between driveways is forcing parents with prams, elderly with mobility issues, and wheelchair users off the side walk and onto the main road. Wright St experiences high car traffic in both the mornings and afternoons due to multiple nearby schools, preschools, and shops. The situation is made more dangerous when pedestrians with small children step into the middle of the street to walk around parked cars however are not easily seen in advance by traffic.
Petition is for a pedestrian footpath to be established on one side of Wright St to connect with the existing footpaths on Fifth Ave and Main Ave for safe pedestrian access.
