Only from the North Mole – Time for Ministerial intervention on South Mole after 7 weeks closure?

What to do on a late Sunday afternoon in Freo?

Well, with the green South Mole still puzzlingly and frustratingly closed off after what can only be described as 7 weeks of inaction by Fremantle Ports, Freo folk are obliged to find their way to the red North Mole to catch the weekend flotilla of marine craft moving between the heads.

Here’s a lovely gallery of what Deanna Shanahan of the famous Instagram duo @flotsamandjetsam saw late yesterday afternoon from North Mole, including the departure of Pacific Explorer on another cruise out of Fremantle.

Hopefully the powers that be at Fremantle Ports get real sometime soon and announce the reopening of South Mole to Freo people. Enough is enough. It can’t be that hard folks.

May be time for Ministerial intervention and/or replacement of the Board to sort things out.
