Hampton Road

20 years ago one councillor, who is still on council, wanted to change the name of Hampton Road, because Governor Hampton had been a harsh taskmaster for the convicts, and made them do some work.

Hampton Road then got a dose of money to cripple traffic along it, with $770,000 spent to cut the number of lanes in two, with the thinking that trucks would just go away.

Now there is a group that wants to further attack this important artery of Fremantle, and they have enlisted the support of Councillor Pemberton. Be aware of this group, or else you will wake up one day with another artery strangled.
