I AGREE with the federal member for Fremantle Melissa Parke MP (Herald Thinking Allowed, September 5, 2015) that it is vitally important we take this opportunity to focus on a project critical to Perth’s long-term transport network.”
A good piece by Matt Taylor bringing up some facts that are not forward by the objectors to the PKL.
It surprises me when I talk to people how little facts they have on the issue, its generally based on emotion, which is also partial the governments fault with them being so slow to release information in an easy to find format.
The amount of misinformation in the community is huge, things like a huge alley being carved thru White Gum Valley are just simply rubbish, how gullible would you need to be to believe such crap.
To be sure if the stage 2 part of Roe 8 is not done right Fremantle residents will get no real benefits and could get a road that divides our community.
Done right it could be a great benefit making travel faster, more efficient, safer, cheaper and open up Fremantle for business that it is not exposed to now. As well as removing from our streets all the traveling through, traffic with no intention of stopping in Fremantle traffic from our suburbs. Not to mention the trucks. Opening good medium density residential on a heavy rail line. Raising revenue to help fund the project. Improving the freight rail link, opening great opportunities for increasing and improving public transport without Fremantle’s Councils destructive light rail link going up south st and at cheaper cost to the tax payer. Opening up a great pedestrian and cycle link from Coogee to Leighton beach.
Sadly the vocal minority have decided to just oppose but not engage which could sadly leave us with the worse outcome if the road goes ahead.
