Latest Perth Freight Link proposal ignores the elephant in the room, says Lynn MacLaren MLC

“The latest proposal to tunnel under White Gum Valley is as nonsensical as ploughing the Roe 8 freeway through the wetlands and ignores the elephant in the room, the pinch point across the river to North Fremantle, Greens South Metropolitan MLC Lynn MacLaren has said.
 
“Once again the Barnett Government is making claims that don't stack up instead of doing its homework properly.
 
“A new port is needed. That's where any new funding should be invested.
 
“There are currently two legal challenges before the Supreme Court of Western Australia against Roe 8.
 
“Committing to a tunnel when the first part of the link is unlikely to be built makes no sense and yet Colin Barnett remains committed to his pet project.
 
“How much more money will this Government waste on this ill-planned road while refusing to consider other more viable, costed options such as Outer Harbour?
 
“This seems to be the only transport plan that this Government has and it has been proven time and time again to be unacceptable, costly and inadequate.”
