Group eyes $50K to fight WA Roe 8 in court

AAP logoAAP 16/08/2016

A crowdfunding campaign to pay for a protest group's High Court legal challenge against WA's controversial Perth Freight Link project has raised $37,000 towards a $50,000 target in less than a week.

The gofundme campaign was set up by the Save Beeliar Wetlands group that has taken their fight against the federal-funded $1.9 billion highway extension to the High Court.

The new road aims to divert heavy trucks on to a direct route to Fremantle Port and will be the state's first toll road, but conservationists are up in arms as the first stage, known as Roe 8, will cut through the environmentally sensitive Beeliar wetlands.
