  • Roe 8 would solve many problems, but the Libs have been promising it for 8 years. Don't hold your breath.

  • I agree with the truck driver that posted before me. Roe Highway stage 8 was needed 5 years ago and needs to be built as a priority. I live in Bibra Lake and sick of the rat runners. Get the trucks off our residential streets and finish the highway circle route first then think about the rail circle route. Build Roe 8 Now!

  • Its shouldn't be the choice between light rail or metronet. Perth disparately needs both.I've been saying for years how perth needs a circle route rail and light rail. i know it will cost a lot, but perth cant afford not to biuld it.

  • They defiantly shouldn't permanently scrap Roe highway stage 8. As a truck driver, getting to and from the Bibra lake and Fremantle area is more difficult than it should be, with no direct route and many intersections to deal with along with traffic congestion. Roe highway stage 8 would take a lot of trucks off, South st, Leach highway, Farrinton road,Berrigan Drive, Beeelier Drive, North lake road and the freeway between roe highway and Armadale road. The roe highway stage 8 is a much safer route for trucks. One example of that is some intersections in the area are at the bottom of a hill and trying to stop a fully loaded truck can be challenging and you get poeple pulling in front of you.Roe stage 8 would allow trucks for bypass these intersections much of the time.
