The planned footbridge across the river from East Perth would more logically originate from the Eastern end of Brown Street than from the Eastern end of Royal Street.

East Perth
I cannot believe that the Government would consider a bridge at this point of the river when it is so close to Wyndam Bridge, no parking for people to park and walk, when they have a prime spot near Gloucester Park that would allow people to park and walk and then continue into town. Why would the Government waste this amount of money? Once again the Government just jumps into these announcements before considering all their options.
