Opinion: Josh Wilson’s PFL comments could doom Fremantle

Has Josh Wilson sounded the death knell for Fremantle with his comments about the Perth Freight Link?

For Josh Wilson to call the Perth Freight Link ridiculous could send investments – both Government and private – away from Fremantle.

Why can’t Fremantle residents have faster access to Fiona Stanley Hospital, to the freeway and to the airport? Why can’t people from the South-West have faster access to Fremantle?

Why can’t we reduce pollution by building a highway that eliminates stop-start traffic lights?

The money was there. When the container terminals do eventually move, Rouse Head will become prime for development and that will probably create more traffic to the area.

With the anti-development brigade calling the shots, the future of Fremantle doesn’t look very bright.
