Like many I did not speak out about the unnecessary and now dangerous bike path made in Aberdeen St, so this time I will put in my written objections to having the median strips in Albany Highway paved.

The area should be a green belt, not a hot, tree killing area.

There are plenty of suitable ground covers that should have been considered if the idea was to avoid mowing.

What a waste of money. And very poor planning for Albany – many of the older areas of Albany have no foot paths/paving, and even access to the ANZAC Centre from the town is not possible by wheelchair, and not very safe for pedestrians, as there is no footpath.

If you have an engineer on board, perhaps he/she needs to walk around Albany to look at what really needs doing – more consideration for our environment and people with disabilities should be considered.
