Fix Road congestion; build Roe 8

It's so much more than just road congestion. It's having extra leisure time or at least not being drained by the drive homes so you can use our children's facilities like this skate park in Atwell. Incidentally every Suburb should have dedicated children and youth skate parks. We need to encourage out door activities and that also means catering for families with shade cover, fountains, BBQ s and toilets.

Decriminalsing drug taking is criminal.

Alternative thinking some times is good; but sometimes it is just plain stupid. To decriminalise the taking of meth for personal use is just plain crazy. Why? because when you decriminalize it then law abiding people think it is ok to try. The same thing happened with marihuana; the courts and Police were getting bogged down in this as a crime so they took it off the books. This is extreme. Simple analogy;If you took speed restrictions off our roads because we were capturing too many people spe... Read Full Post »

I was at the launch of the campaign to build the North Lake overpass and complete the dual laning of Armadale Rd today. . A no brainer this should have been done years ago. It will fix Knock Place where it takes longer to get out of the train station than the journey itself from Perth or indeed Joondalup. Yes North Lake overpass will reduce the traffic considerably on Beeliar Drive in front of Gateways which apparently the Peron Group are waiting on before committing to a $300 million expansio...

It is heartening to see the support of like minded people. Many have said, I thought I was in the minority the way the anti Roe people act.

Getting the facts out, reassuring people and highlighting the benefits is a just cause. Go Roe 8!!

No more scare mongering

I'm so over the scaremongering, rhetoric and glib one liners; Roe Highway is a road to somewhere! Cockburn a destination for 95% of the traffic of Stage 7 will go to Cockburn high employment hubs of North Lake Rd, Stock Rd and Cockburn Roads Henderson. Melville and Fremantle will get benefits as well. Melville who are suffering 60% of the total of car crashes involving trucks in rear end collisions has double the average of crashes; 11.4%. the overall for the Metro area is 11%. So it will make r... Read Full Post »
