Plummer St bypass opens

The long awaited Plummer St bypass was opened with a bit less fanfare than the new Eastlink on Thursday 12 June by the Minister for Roads and Ports, Tim Pallas.
Residents of Williamstown Road have campaigned for over a decade for a solution to the traffic they have borne since the closure of the Graham St on ramp to the West Gate freeway.
With two sets of traffic lights, and smooth as silk bitumen, it is anticipated that it will make a preferred trip for truck drivers accessing the freeway network.
The next step is to get Dockside Road, the road inside the port boundary, built to get the remainder of the heavy truck traffic off Williamstown Road.
Then they can sleep in peace.
