FREMANTLE LIGHTRAIL NOT A PIPE DREAM, it could be a nightmare for locals residents and businesses

Will this be a bigger impact on the fremantle community, than roe 9 tunnel??????????

Fremantle residents need to ensure they ask Fremantle council the right questions with our politically motivated ideological driven council on the drive for their latest scenario.

This would appear to make Fremantle Councils light rail more destructive to Fremantle than the Roe 9 tunnel.  All the verge trees and many in peoples front yards would need to be cut down, or cleared to make way for Rachel’s Pemberton’s Light Rail Future.

  • How many families would have their  homes on South St impacted?
  • How many businesses would need to knocked down to make way for the new rail line?
  • How much of their blocks will be reclaimed for the new verges area?
  • All the big pine trees on South St before Carrington St would need to go.
  • About 80 trees between Carrington St and Stock St would need to go.
  • The impact east of Stock Rd could also be huge if over head power is needed, with many old large trees could over hang the power system.
  • How will this effect the value of all homes along South St especially those close to road with added rail noise and vibration. Wheel squeal and flanging noise are often causes of annoyance to residents as the high pitch screeching is mainly found at the high frequency end of the human audible noise spectrum?
  • Now its been made so public will real estate agents now have to warn prospective buyers of the developments the council is driving for.
  • Now the Councillor has come out and spoken about it so publicly, what impact could this have on Trans Perth not prioritizing new bus routes or possible rapid bus transit lanes, which TP development speaks of?
  • The months of turmoil on people and businesses while South St is dug up and the new infrastructure is put in place?
  • Worse, no road reserve is noted for the final leg to Fremantle, so who’s street could it drive through and what is the impact on loss of homes and businesses to for fill their ideology? Leaving years of uncertainly for local families
  • This is just the start of the questions of the impact that such a project could have.
  • Will council make this projects impact clear to all residents and businesses impacted by their new rail line before the next election, or will this get another dose of spin, smoke and mirrors.
  • Would Roe 9 have removed many vehicles off south st if council had engaged in a positive contribution to this project instead of the negative one
  • Is this just another council drive to lift the R zoning, killing off our urban canopy and adding to their anti-car campaign.

The devastation on an old established suburb will be huge by driving a light rail system through these old heritage area.

Peter Goodes Who pays for the infrastructure! Seriously!

Peter Goodes Mayor Brad Pettitt that’s a nice way to put it Brad. I think light rail is great. I could never understand why Fremantle and southern areas didnt have greater access to public rail. However, it is interesting how over the last 40 yrs this state has sysSee more
