Works ‘not an extension’
City of Cockburn planning and development services director Daniel Arndt said council representatives would know more after a meeting with Main Roads this month.
“The City has confirmed that the State Government does not support the modification of any local road to allow freight access from Stock Road to the Kwinana Freeway,” he said.
“This includes Farrington and Winterfold roads.
“Any modification of these roads would only be for the sole benefit of local residents to better move in and around the community.
“The State Government has clearly indicated that this is not a part of any extension to Roe Highway.”
Willagee MLA Peter Tinley said he was looking to facilitate a community information session “as soon as practicable”.
“I have had several discussions with Rita Saffioti and she is committed to a consultation process once design details are established,” she said.
“I believe it is important to have the answers to major and obvious community questions before a meeting is arranged.”
Construction on the project, which was included in a $2.3 billion road and rail deal struck by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Premier Mark McGowan last month, is expected later this year and expected to create 700 jobs.
