If you saw the Wynnum Herald this week you will have seen an article about how few people are actually using the pedestrian crossings in Wynnum Central – roughly twice as many people cross the road without using the crossings than those that do. Technically crossing the road anywhere within 20m of a designated crossing is an offence carrying a fine of $48.
There’s an easy solution to this problem and one that is supported by the majority of residents (if our recent poll is anything to go by) – pedestrianise Edith Street and put in a lap pool there!
When is a parking sport not a parking spot? When it’s a reserved parking spot. A quick look at the parking spaces in Seagrass Lane – behind the NAB bank showed how misleading the blue parking sign actually is. It shows 70 car parks, but in fact only 29 are unreserved by local businesses. The sign may be technically correct, but it is misleading.
WynnumCentral also spotted an endangered species in Wynnum Central this week – a parking attendant! ‘We don’t get out here much’ he said.
