Fremantle road to rail campaign launch

A public campaign is being launched by Fremantle community members in response to the increasing volume of heavy vehicle traffic through our residential areas. We are concerned about greenhouse gases emissions, particulate and other pollution, noise and unsafe road conditions.

We’re calling for freight on rail to keep our roads and community safe.
