NO TREE HUGGING AT HIGH STREET UPGRADE

Good to read in the Fremantle Herald today that there will be no protest and people living up trees at the High Street Upgrade project, to get freight faster to Fremantle Port.

The Forest Rescue group people have liaised with Mainroads, according to the Chook, and found a really good compromise. As a ‘tree offset’ measure Mainroads has agreed to plant 10,000 Tuart sapling in Fremantle and neighbouring councils, to compensate for the loss of 67 trees.

Work on the demolition of the High Street buildings and FERN has already started and a golf course design team has been appointed by the City of Fremantle to redesign the public course that will initially lose two holes because of the road widening.
