Fremantle Gazette - - OPINION - DARYL BINNING, Winthrop

IT’S only a mat­ter of time be­fore a ma­jor, pos­si­bly fa­tal, ac­ci­dent will oc­cur and those re­spon­si­ble will deny cul­pa­bil­ity.

If any­one needs ev­i­dence of the fu­ture dam­age that will be done by delet­ing the nearby Roe 8, you only have to look at the grow­ing traf­fic on a short sec­tion at the western end of Far­ring­ton Road near North Lake.

With the in­creas­ing traf­fic now be­ing forced into a sin­gle lane, ma­jor con­ges­tion is oc­cur­ring and risks are be­ing taken, as par­ents drop off and pick up their chil­dren from a col­lege mid­way along the nar­row sec­tion.

It will only get worse as mo­torists are de­nied the use of the pro­posed Roe free­way.
