Bid to stop Roe 8 project rejected by Federal Court

A Federal Court bid to stop work on Perth’s controversial $450 million Roe 8 road project has failed.

The Save Beeliar Wetlands group’s application for an injunction was rejected by Federal Court Justice Antony Siopis. The injunction was based on an argument that the government had failed to meet legal environmental obligations to provide an alternative habitat for the endangered black cockatoo.

The WA government has bought land at two sites south of Mandurah that it will fund for at least 20 years as alternative homes for the species.

Opponents say the sites are inadequate and Greens MP Lynn MacLaren says a petroleum search permit exists over the area so it could be drilled.

After Monday's decision, 58-year-old Elizabeth Burrow locked herself to drilling equipment, saying it was to stop precious wetlands being destroyed.
