Traffic pain for Liberal seat

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 11 July, 2012 - 8:40 AM
A prominent liberal member is warning he'll lose his seat because of the foreshore redevelopment.

Liberal member for South Perth, John McGrath, says he could lose his seat if the traffic impact from the Perth foreshore redevelopment isn't resolved. Paul Murray spoke to John about the problem of increased traffic congestion in his electorate.

 

 

Opposition spoekesperson on transport Ken Travers says that the problems on traffic flow from the foreshore redevelopment will extend further than just South Perth.

Mr Travers told the Morning program that traffic flow modelling shows inner city suburbs to the north and east will be heavily impacted upon as well.

 

Transport Minister Troy Buswell says the rumblings from the opposition show the major difference and voter choice between the government and Labor.

Mr Buswell told Paul Murray that under Labor major projects would not go ahead and that Labor were trying to create hysteria over just 5000 vehicle movements a day.

 

Blog comments Your Say

  • I would be concerned about five new intersections being put in.They could at least design the roads for the project differently for maximum traffic flow.

  • Long time listener - first time commenting!
    I love Colin's cut throat approach - he acts for the future of our city rather than winning votes. Seriously - if it came to a debate everytime a minority group kicked up then things would never get done. Come on Perth lets move forward! Bring on the foreshore/stadium/everything.
    Mr Barnett - keep up the good work. You have my vote! I'm 24 and I know there are many others in my age group who agree with me - the problem is not enough of us speak up.
