Porter and Winton echo calls for freeway to Romeo Rd

1959
Pearce MHR Christian Porter has called on residents to sign a petition calling for the extension of the Mitchell Fwy to Romeo Rd.

PEARCE MHR Christian Porter and Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton have joined the push to extend the Mitchell Fwy to Romeo Rd.

Mr Porter wants residents to sign a petition, which he can then present to the Federal Parliament.

Meanwhile, Ms Winton who also supports extending the freeway from Hester Ave to Romeo Rd, wants Romeo Rd made into a regional road so there is another road like Pipidinny Rd linking Wanneroo Rd and Marmion Ave.

“I too call on the Mitchell Fwy to be extended to Romeo Rd,’’ she said.

“The unfortunate reality though is that the delivery of this is a few years off, and my most immediate concern is to find alternative routes to distribute the considerable congestion growing almost daily in our northern growth corridor.

“It makes good sense to cut another path through for those who want to get onto Wanneroo Rd from the coastal suburbs and allow people to avoid the Hester Ave on and off ramps of the Mitchell Fwy.

“I will continue to advocate for a quicker and more immediate short term solution by way of getting Romeo Rd pushed through from Marmion Ave to Wanneroo Rd, at the corner of Karoborup Rd, Carabooda.

“Additionally I continue to fight for much needed roadworks to make that stretch safer for cars trying to turn off Wanneroo Rd.’’

Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton supports the extension of the Mitchell Fwy but in the meantime wants Romeo Rd to link Marmion Ave and Wanneroo Rd.

Mr Porter said he was pleased the Mitchell Fwy extension to Hester Ave was now open, but was calling on support from residents to see the freeway further extended to Romeo Rd.

“The Mitchell Fwy extension to Hester Ave is a great achievement but it is not the end of our fight,” he said.

“Our northern suburbs continue to grow and we continue to need better road infrastructure to support that growth, ease congestion and improve community connectivity.

“I want to get the freeway further extended out Romeo Rd and I need your help with this fight going forward.

“Get involved – head to my website and sign the petition so that I can take the fight to Canberra.

“This is all about making our lives even easier and getting us home to our families even faster.”
