"We all hounded the council until the Greens’ Porteous finally got it done. We also hounded them to put in wider bypasses behind bus shelters like the one in The Crescent and at White Bay."

"I understand it was the late, respected, Ted Floyd, who hounded Council til they varied the contract and had the end-of-shelter ads removed.  Victoria Road thus probably has the ONLY end-of-shelter clear panes in Australia."
