Australia Post

To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled:

This petition from concerned citizens of the City of Wanneroo, Western Australia draws to the attention of the House the unsuitability of the current location of the Wanneroo Post Office which is presently sited external to the new Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre.

The current location of the Wanneroo Post Office is unsuitable and would be better suited within the new Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre because:

(1) the present location of the Post Office fails to cater for the needs of the present population or the aged, disabled (either walking or in wheelchairs) and young mothers with prams. The level flooring already in place in the new Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre would alleviate all these problems.

(2) Vehicular through traffic is daily becoming more dangerous for those people reversing their vehicles, or for those walking from their vehicles to the Post Office. There is no Zebra crossing for pedestrians. An extra plus is the fact that the new internal shopping centre location would provide extra service by way of the Post Office being open for business on a Saturday morning.

We therefore ask the House to:

support our request for the relocation of the Wanneroo Post Office from its current location to a site in the confines of the new Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre.
