Two women have locked themselves to the gates of a construction company’s yard to lock in bulldozers and delay work on Perth’s controversial Roe 8 project.
Protesters Sarah Ward and Susan Flavell chained themselves in Bibra Lake on Tuesday morning and say they are determined to stop work all day to save the Coolbellup Woodlands and Beeliar Wetlands.
Ms Flavell says the West Australia community has spent years petitioning the government but the Premier Colin Barnett had refused to listen.
It comes after weeks of protesting at the site where many people have been arrested and issued with move-on notices.
Roe 8 will be WA’s first toll road despite state government indecision on the rest of the route for the $1.9 billion Perth Freight Link project connecting Roe Highway to Fremantle port.
Ms Ward said there were better freight solutions that did not cause so much destruction.
