Call for no more coal

A plea to our collective community common sense.

Let’s not wait until our Springs and Autumns get as hot as these horrendous Summers before we tell our governments, banks and industry leaders – No more coal.

Jude Street pedestrian concern

The Bradman complex is probably the most visited site in Bowral, but not everybody goes there by car.

As well as local pedestrian traffic, many visitors come from the train station down Boolwey Street and turn right into St Jude Street to get to the museum and coffee shop.

St Jude Street has no real path.

This is fine for most people but it is a problem for people pushing prams or having to use walkers to get around.

These people have little option but to walk on the eastern side of the road outside parked cars and not facing the oncoming traffic.

I have drawn the council’s attention to the inconvenience and potential danger of this situation three or four times over 10 years and have always been fobbed off.

From last year the problem became personal since I now need a walker to get around and am a regular visitor to the Stumps coffee shop.

After two more requests that some of the money recovered from the Lehman fiasco be set aside to construct a decent path, no action is being taken.

My latest advice is still that they have it on the list but not for a while yet.

I have seen paths built in less-important places over the years and hope it doesn’t take an accident to get action along St Jude Street,
