Rethink The Link is 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 alternative sustainable transport solutions. With the state election resulting in a change of government on March 11th 2017, the Perth Freight Link and Roe 8 were stopped but the alternatives still require formalising by the new government.

Rethink the Link is part of an alliance of over 30 groups and 5 Local Governments that oppose the Perth Freight Link.
