LATEST NO ROE 8 NEWS
At the June 11 council meeting, Elected Members adopted an alternative proposal to Roe 8 and the Perth Freight Link.
The Council will now lobby the State Government to move the construction of an intermodal facility at Latitude 32 forward. This alternative will focus on freight to rail, utilising existing infrastructure with minimal community and environmental impact.

The City has been successful in obtaining $100,000 to go towards the construction of a stairway from the southern car park at Manning Lake to the eastern lookout.
There are also plans to upgrade the eastern lookout in the near future. This area will become increasing important and popular as North Coogee and Port Coogee are developed. Formalising trails will help alleviate impacts in this area.
Works are expected to be in progress for 6-8 weeks.
