Dr Peter Newman is the Professor of Sustainability at Curtin University This presentation focuses on the flaws in the planning processes for the Perth Freight Link, in particular Roe 9.
Rethink The Link was a community run campaign started in early 2015 as a response to the sudden creation of the Perth Freight Link (PFL) project by the state and federal governments. Rethink The Link believed there was a better solution to the proposed Perth Freight Link and the raft of economic, environmental and social impacts it would have on the WA community.
Our goal was to convince the governments to rethink their commitment to the Perth Freight Link in the current form and consider an alternative sustainable transport solution. With the election result on March 11th this goal was achieved.
