Fremantles Dangerous Street Sumps

On the Cnr of South St and Hines Rd in O’Conner the street sump has started to subside for some time.

 

Even now the netting that was put up has started to sun bleach and has well and truly collapsed.

 

Anyone walking along the fence line in the dark would just disappear into the hole. Not to mention the further damage that will happen to the sump if left un-repaired, i.e. cost to the rate payer.

 

How simple issue are’s like this left unattended for so long?

 

What concerns me is that is council ideology is drawing funds and attention from the basic issues of simple maintenance?  Which should be concerning for all of us. Clearly maintenance issues aren’t getting the attention they need or perhaps the funding is not there as council prefers to drive/fund their own political ideology instead of resident and rate payers amenity, or in this case safety.
