I have proposed that council supports a trial to keep all buses – except the CAT – off the cappuccino strip over summer. What do you think?
Below is the Notice of Motion that will be debated on Wednesday 10 October:
That the Council requests that the Public Transport Authority continues the current service deviation of bus routes 98, 99, 511, 513, 520, 530, 531, 532, 825, 920 in place due to road works underway on the “Cappuccino Strip” (Market Street and the northern end of South Terrace) as a trial over summer.
The CAT bus will resume its route along the cappuccino strip as soon as possible.
The buses – Routes 98, 99, 511, 513, 520, 530, 531, 532, 825, 920 – will to continue to divert along Parry Street, Elder Street and Phillimore Street (as outlined on the PTA website and copied below) from the beginning of the Fremantle Festival (Sunday 28 October) until the end of the Street Arts Festival (Easter Monday 2013).
