I guess the peel bypass is a good thing, though its still not adressing the fact that there are just to many cars on the road, ie. the graham farmer freeway was supposed to reduce inner city traffic though overall its just increased it, and riverside drive is still as crazy as can be, blocking off river access to the PEOPLE, and they are who count, building roads doesen't solve the fact that we simply have to many cars on the road, public transport is the only solution, bypasses arn't a solution as they just increase traffic and cause new planning nightmares

alot of the bypasses though get eaten up by development and they need a bypass for the bypass it would be good to see the australind extendended to busselton and maybe margeret river, because we want tourist to taste our wine but we dont' want them driving so get them on tours etc... get them drinking up our premium wine! though there are luxury coaches south but an extended rail system would cater for alot more people. though atleast with the major upgrades to the south west roads you can get down there a heap faster now, using less fuel and more fuel efficient, we wouldn't want to many cars though or that nice fresh WA air will be full of fumes, even in tropical QLD its quite restricted to cars to keeps its beauty

Cheque book opens up for deviation
HORNS and cheers sounded from passing motorists travelling towards the end of the Kwinana Freeway on Monday.

They were tooting when Premier Geoff Gallop

arrived to announce $170 million of State funds to the Peel Deviation and Kwinana Freeway Extension projects, to be completed within the next five years.

A big sign on the eastern end of the freeway now outlines the 2007 construction plan.

On top of this news Prime Minister John Howard announced yesterday the Federal government would match Federal Labor's plans of $170 million to the project.

This is up on the $150 million previously earmarked by the Federal government.

But there is a condition – the extra the Federal government will only add the extra $20 million if the State commits to starting the project in 2006.

"I think the local public will be thanking the Liberal Government for pushing to hurry up and get this project underway," Federal Member for Canning Don Randall said yesterday.

Around 2000 heavy vehicles and over 30,000 travel along the existing route through Mandurah every day.

Premier Gallop said the State was hoping to reduce the current congestion, particularly during long weekends, by around 7000 vehicles through Preston Beach each day before 2011, plus a further 2000 vehicles before 2021.

The construction of the Peel Deviation will allow travel time to be reduced by 30 minutes for those driving from Perth to Bunbury.

Pre-construction works on the planned Freeway and Deviation routes are currently underway, including various surveys, geotechnical investigations, design and the development of environmental management plans.

Dr Gallop said the Labor Government took the southern suburbs seriously and an intelligent financial plan was desperately required.

"There is definitely an enormous amount of work to be done," he said.

"But we are well and truly on track for this project.

"I want to stress that this commitment hasn't just arrived because of the Federal election campaign – it has been on the agenda for some time now."

Hansard records show that Dawesville MLA Arthur Marshall has urged the State Government to fast-forward the Peel Deviation on 35 occasions.

"The announcement that the Peel Deviation will commence in 2007 sounds encouraging but, in effect, the Deviation should be starting in 2006," Mr Marshall said.

"The pre-election announcement is just another one of the Gallop Government's promises prior to an election when the project should have started two years ago.

"I'm pleased that Alannah MacTiernan has at least acknowledged the need for the deviation around Mandurah and I will continue to strive to have it started earlier."

I hate private transport too, but the alternative (being public) is not a great option at this stage.

How about Perth consider some new light rail lines? Eg, Sacrborough Beach Rd Line or an Alexander Dr Line? Or maybe a Beaufort St line to Morley.

yes light rail running east west linking to major rail transit station on all line would be great to feed alot of new commuters into the station, open up stations to a heap bigger population, reduce traffic problems at stations, and just open up public transit to more people, well private transit would be okay but with the rising fuel prices, growing traffic problems + environmental problems etc.. I think its important we embrace, support and use public transit so we can direct our time and money at other more important areas than just the private motor vehicle... this is coming from someone who used to sit in traffic an hour to hardly go anywhere 4 days a week to now a 10 min train ride to tafe... i have been converted, now its about time the rest of perth waked up

i think extending the Mitchell beyond Hodges is great as Joondalup Drive will have less cars on the road.
