Res­i­dents want an­swers on ‘Roe 10’

Western Suburbs Weekly - - State Election ‘17 -

PRE­MIER Colin Bar­net says that if re-elected, about 70 live ex­port ships each need­ing up to 200 trucks will move to Kwinana from North Fremantle.

On Wed­nes­day, North Fremantle res­i­dents protested call­ing for in­for­ma­tion on Perth Freight Link’s fi­nal sec­tion, dubbed Roe 10.

“But the Gov­ern­ment, if elected, has no in­ten­tion of a ma­jor cap­i­tal works pro­gram - it would de­stroy North Fremantle,” Mr Bar­nett said.

An­swer­ing res­i­dents’ de­mands for Roe 10 con­cepts so they can de­cide their fu­tures, Mr Bar­nett said the dan­ger­ous Ty­de­man Road-stir­ling High­way in­ter­sec­tion may be mod­i­fied and Stir­ling Bridge could get an ex­tra lane “at some stage”.

Res­i­dents said there had been more diesel par­ti­cle pol­lu­tion, greater truck noise and worse traf­fic and pedes­trian safety as con­tainer traf­fic in­creased.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pet­titt said his coun­cil de­cided not to re­lease “mock-ups” of its Ty­de­man Road so­lu­tions for the PFL be­cause of State Elec­tion “heat” and a need to test the de­signs’ en­gi­neer­ing.
