Road to delay

STATE Liberal governments have never been enthusiastic over transport infrastructure. It was a case of d�j� vu when the Premier announced that Roe 8 would not be built during this term of government.

He is rather optimistic to expect there will be another one. I recall Liberal’s procrastination with starting the Fremantle bypass . This and other stalled projects resulted in Labor being elected.

The first thing they did was write the bypass out of the metropolitan planning scheme to assist in retaining the seat for a Fremantle politician. With the Greens and myopic environmentalists gaining succour by Labor affiliation, I expect by delaying Roe 8 we will see the inevitable outcome of political procrastination.
