Nrma backs highway funding pledge, after losing in election
Nrma takes’stronger’ stance after MDC votes to reject council’s recommendation to build another ferry terminal and add to Port Arthur’s terminal
It is likely a key decision that will influence future ferry terminals for Port Arthur and the rest of the West Australian Peninsula.

“We are simply not able to proceed on the basis of a commitment to only build the four ports, which the government has committed to, for the benefit of the entire regional rail and freight sector, given that we cannot deliver the infras에볼루션 카지노tructure to meet those targets.”
Last night, the West Australian Government said it was reviewing the council’s decision, which “will make for difficult decisions for many of the Port Arthur Group’s staff and partners”.
