Perth Freight Link some other Facts

“MATT TAYLOR is the state Liberal MP for Bateman and in this week’sTHINKING ALLOWED defends the Perth Freight Link.

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.”

FIGHTING FOR YOU

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.

 

Update; Fremantle’s/Perth Freight Link, What’s Really Proposed, Before City of Freo Blows another $100,000

More links at bottom of post

Dean Nadler’s press release today has raised the normal Fremantle response, you can hear the sabres rattling again as the troops ready for another battle.

It seems our council or to be precise CR JON STRACHAN wishes to start this fight with a $100, 000 of our cities funds. This amount it appears will be used to come up with a better plan than the combined force of the W.A. main roads and multiple multinationals construction companies? Sounds like a pretty Cavalier attitude with city funds?

Considering the wording of Nadler’s opening paragraph, “The Australian and Western Australian governments are getting on with delivering world-class infrastructure with three proponents invited to participate in the Request for Proposals (RFP) phase of the $1.575 billion Perth Freight Link project.”

After reading this and word proposals, it seems this next milestone is looking at direction for this new freight link. Considering some of the groups don’t build roads but are involved in tunnels, others bridges or jetties and another is actively involved in rail construction in Perth. Perhaps it’s a bit early to be jumping to conclusions about what this new consortium will propose?

So before the City Council decides to burn $100,000 of city funds trying to out think and develop a transport network where just one of the dozen companies involved is AECOM a company  which is a global provider of professional technical and management support services to a broad range of markets, including transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government. AECOM has approximately 100,000 employees and is currently listed at #322 on the Fortune 500 list.

It may be a good idea to hear what they propose before we decide to piss into the Freo Doctor  a $100,000 of city funds?

Let’s face it with the city’s track record of getting the state government to invest in Freo’s benefit, we may as well just take the $100,000 down to the cafe strip and shout a few rounds on a Saturday night? At least then we would think things are great, well to till the hangover hits  and at least the feel good effect of blowing $100,000 would last longer, than their plans?

Update with links to get more info, read a balance of information to make an informed decision, of course that takes time and effort.
