Rehabilitating Roe 8 is a collaboration between the government and community organisations to enable the repair of the Roe 8 project site from east of the Kwinana Freeway to west of Stock Road.
In collaboration with community, scientists, State government and the City of Cockburn a 10-year Rehabilitation Management Plan was prepared for the Corridor, which spans 4.5 kilometres from Bibra Drive, to west of Stock Road.
The Rehabilitation Management Plan sets out objectives for both the restoration of the site, which comprises seven different ecosystems, and community engagement. The site will be used for passive recreation, environmental and cultural education and research.
Community involvement is seen as pivotal to the success of the project.
The implementation of the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Rehabilitation Management Plan is being overseen by the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Advisory Committee. The committee meets monthly to discuss all aspects of the rehabilitation including program of works, education and communications opportunities and events. The committee membership is two years. Committee meeting agendas and minutes can be accessed here.
