A delegation of residents and traders met with Transport Minister, Terry Mulder, on Wednesday 9th February.

We received a very detailed and frank assessment from the Minister of the status of the RRL project and intentions regarding a full project review.

Mr Mulder was very responsive to the concerns raised by our delegation and it was apparent from his responses that he was well informed about the specifics of several of the residential acquisition cases. We are pleased that Mr Mulder appeared prepared to cut through red tape to make decisions regarding affected residents and traders on a case-by-case basis. 

For the affected residents and traders the whole situation is far from resolved, but this meeting was a very positive step in the right direction.  

After meeting with you, our delegation headed straight back to report to a meeting of our residents' support group. We had a large turnout last night with people very keen to find out the facts of the situation after so much uncertainty over the last couple of weeks. The group was reassured by the the delegation's report and people were very pleased to hear of the Minister's concern and commitment.
