SLOW ROAD WORKS IRK

Joondalup Weekender - - Opinion -

THE north­ern res­i­dents are very an­gry that the free­way was not ex­tended to Romeo Road.

This de­ci­sion has caused our Gov­ern­ment to spend mil­lions on an­cil­lary roads that would not be nec­es­sary if the free­way were planned cor­rectly.

To add salt to the wound we cur­rently have Marmion re­duced to a sin­gle lane while that an­cil­lary work is un­der­taken. For the last three days there have been three peo­ple work­ing on the Lukin/Marmion round­about.

This work would have taken a week­end in any other de­vel­oped coun­try, but in WA it is go­ing to take at least a month. So while no pri­or­ity is given to this job, the north­ern res­i­dents have to en­dure 1km of grid­lock.

Come on Main Roads/Wanneroo City, start su­per­vis­ing this job and get it fin­ished to stop the un­nec­es­sary de­lays. DOUG CROKER, But­ler
