Traditional owners continue to challenge the Aboriginal heritage approval for a major highway extension in WA

31st Mar 2016

In June 2015 the Aboriginal Cultural Materials Committee reversed a previous  recommendation to reject the approval of the Roe 8 highway extension application to disturb registered sites, because of the cultural significance of Bibra and North Lakes.

But Nyoongar custodian Corina Abraham is challenging the approval, and  has launched  legal action against the Western Australian Aboriginal Affairs Minister Peter Collier and the ACMA.

Ms Abraham says the construction is damaging her people and stressed the importance of their coming together collectively, in opposition of the highway extension.
