Holey Moley! Botany car park becoming safety risk

By Jim Birchall

Potholes continue to plague the carpark adjacent to the Warehouse and Pak n Save at Botany Town centre.

The area which is owned by Foodstuff’s has been in a state of disrepair for some time, and bad sentiment is growing with locals who bring their families to shop. The holes are big and ugly enough to cause substantial damage to a vehicle and injure a pedestrian, who are every chance of falling into the asphalt abyss.

Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross has today sent a letter to the CEO’s of Foodstuffs, The Warehouse, and the owner of Danske Mobler asking them to address the issue.

Foodstuff’s was approached for comment and External Relations Manager Sue Hamilton had this to say:

“We’ve heard the complaints about the carpark at PAK’nSAVE Botany and other stores in the area.  We are working with our landlord to rectify this.  As you will all know, we are doing some major works on the store and part of the refurbishment includes making big improvements to the carpark – such as more parking bays and trolley bays.  We are absolutely on the case”.
