The Perth Freight Link: Facts and Fiction
The supporters of Roe 8 and the Perth Freight Link (PFL) have been spreading misinformation and half truths about the developments. Their aim is to discredit alternatives by the selective use of the facts. This analysis of the Roe 8 and PFL myths provides a more complete picture. It has been prepared by Peter Newman and Philip Jennings for The Beeliar Group – Professors for Environmental Responsibility.

Urgent need for action: The Beeliar Group speaks out
The Beeliar Group takes a strong stand against the destruction of precious West Australian wetlands and woodlands (the Beeliar Regional Park), and calls for an immediate halt to work on Roe 8, a major highway development that will traverse them. In so doing, we propose an alternative long-term agenda. Our rationale is set out in this paper. Further papers will follow and be posted on this website.
