LAST week�s Gazette ran two full-page adverts encouraging West Aussies to stop smoking � right after a half-page advert in which the State Government promotes its proposed solution to traffic congestion: build more roads.

I fail to see how the proposed Roe 8 freeway right through a flourishing eco system will make us healthier.

Bibra Lake and the Beeliar Wetlands are used daily by many for healthy pursuits such as walking and cycling.

Increased traffic will mean decreased air quality for not only these users of the reserve, but also for tens of thousands of residents.

Which does the State Government want � a healthier or unhealthier population?

I am confused
