STOP THE BULLDOZERS NOW!!
The Roe8 extension will traverse right through the important and ecologically diverse Beeliar Wetlands in Western Australia. Houses will also be demolished.
If the road goes through it will create a major bottleneck closer to the port.
Previous state governments have rejected the extension/link due to the great environmental impact.
2003 EPA report Bulletin 1088, highlights the ecological values of North Lake & Bibra Lake
The EPA concludes that any proposal for the construction of the alignment of Roe Highway Stage 8 through the Beeliar Regional Park would be extremely difficult to be made environmentally acceptable.”
“the EPA is of the opinion that the overall impacts of construction within the alignment, or any alignment through the Beeliar Regional Park in the vicinity of North Lake and Bibra Lake, would lead to the ecological values of the area as a whole being diminished in the long-term. Every effort should be made to avoid this..."
It is recommended that other alternatives to direct freight through the general area, which do not involve the clearing and filling of the wetlands within the Beeliar Regional Park, be pursued.”(Environmental values associated with the alignment of Roe Highway (Stage 8), p16).
