Don’t deny us the full benefits of the Murdoch Drive Connection. Less Congestion now!

The Murdoch Drive Connection will be built in our community but we will be denied full access to it and the full benefits!
The Federal Government is funding the construction of the Murdoch Drive Connection to Roe Highway and the Kwinana Freeway. The project is a good project and it will give direct access to and from Fiona Stanley Hospital and Murdoch University.
Residents should have the full benefit of this new road, they should not be denied full access to it and be forced into longer travel times and more congestion.
The State Government is responsible for design and construction. The 2017 Concept designs would have provided direct access from Bibra Drive and Farrington Road to Roe Highway and the Kwinana Freeway using the Murdoch Drive connection.
Disappointingly the Minister for Transport, Rita Saffioti has, after being influenced by a noisy minority, decided to remove direct access from Bibra Drive and Farrington Road to Roe Highway and the Kwinana Freeway using the Murdoch Drive connection. This means that residents will be denied full access to the new road and many will have to continue to use South Street, Berrigan Drive, Farrington Road and Karel Avenue to access the Kwinana freeway or Roe Highway, making their travel times longer. We should be reducing congestion around South Street and Berrigan Drive.
Minister Saffioti and State Labor Members of Parliament Peter Tinley MLA and Yaz Mubarakai MLA have the influence to change this. We need them to know our concerns and we need them to make the changes before it is too late.
