Honour ’60s bridge pledge
TOODYAY’S 1960s Duke Street pedestrian bridge has been closed after being allowed to fall into disrepair.
As a member of the 1960s rail construction crew, I recognise that the Duke Street bridge was an integral part of the railway’s design as a concession to partially compensate Toodyay for being split by the railway.READ MORE
Any support or approval Western Australian Government Railways gained was based upon the provision of the bridge and this would have worked towards quelling any protesting.
The bridge needs to be properly maintained or be replaced.
I call upon the WA Government to honour the commitment originally given to the people of Toodyay.
