New Access Roads to be Considered for Yallingup

In response to the Keetly Report on the MR fires (see previous post) the WA government has said new access roads will be urgently considered for Prevelly, Yallingup, Gracetown and the College Grove area, providing reasonable and alternate evacuation routes in the event of future bushfires.

The problem of deadend roads in the MR region and the threat they cause to lives was highlighted during public hearings after the November fire.
