HIGH STREET UPGRADE — FREMANTLE GOLF COURSES

961. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I refer to the McGowan government's proposed works for High Street and Stirling Highway in Fremantle.

(1) What is the general scope of work that will directly affect Royal Fremantle Golf Club's course and the cost of that work and who is paying for the work?

(2) What is the general scope of work that will directly affect the Fremantle public golf course and the cost of that work and who is paying for the work?

(3) What financial contribution or other assistance is the state government providing to the City of Fremantle to offset the resumption of land on the northern boundary of the public course and to enable the city to reinstate a full, functioning public golf course?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(3) Main Roads is working closely with the City of Fremantle on the High Street project. The upgrade of High Street will require land from the Royal Fremantle Golf Club and will impact a portion of the Fremantle public golf course. Main Roads is working with the City of Fremantle on the modifications required to enable a fully functioning golf course. The cost of this work has not yet been determined, but will be accommodated within the project budget.
