Call to save history

Cockburn Gazette - - NEAR YOU -

A HER­ITAGE site that was vi­tal to Fre­man­tle’s World War II de­fence ef­forts needs to be pre­served, ac­cord­ing to South Metropoli­tan Re­gion MLC Phil Ed­man. Mr Ed­man said res­i­dents had ap­proached him about the four con­crete bunkers and the re­mains of a me­tal radar tower that form the Ra­dio Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Cen­tre in Kwinana, say­ing they needed to be re­stored. He said it was part of a string of coastal de­fence bat­ter­ies that stretched from Swan­bourne to Point Peron, and it played an im­por­tant role in Fre­man­tle’s de­fence sys­tem.
