Residents want answers on ‘Roe 10’
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.
