Work begins at Midland Oval

Written by:

City of Swan started work this morning on a road through Midland Oval as part of redevelopment plans.

Police were called when a man temporarily stood in front of a front-end loader before the area was roped off.

Up to 12 people watched the machine work, including those against the extension of The Avenue through the oval.

Save Midland Oval supporters hit Facebook to criticise the City of Swan and accuse it of bullying ahead of an electors’ meeting to discuss the redevelopment plans on June 18.

“The Save Midland Oval community have no intentions to interfere or become violent with workers but ask the Minister to intervene to suspend works,” one post said.
