Do the $ add up?
EastLink is being hammered in every direction... environmentally and now financially. Our friends at Rethink EastLink (Orange route) have long been highlighting how this 80 km highway would carve a bitumen path of destruction through the Hills from Talbot Rd, into John Forrest National Park, sweeping nearby past Parkerville and Stoneville, cutting through the heart of Gidgy and into parts of Wooroloo, and the KEP Trail, to name a few. $20-million is already being spent on a 'feasibility study'.
Now there are serious financial questions around spending billions more on projects like this. We met Tania Lawrence - WA Labor for Hasluck prior to the election and raised our EastLink concerns. We're seeking another meeting with Tania soon with much more to discuss on this matter... is EastLink also staring down the financial barrel?
