The Shire’s of Meekatharra and Wiluna have jointly prepared a Petition to the WA Parliament Legislative Council to initiate a parliamentary inquiry into the sealing of the remaining section of the unsealed Goldfields Highway without delay.

The Petition can be signed in hard copy form available at both the Shire’s of Meekatharra and Wiluna administration offices as well as business premises in the town, and by ePetition which obtains signatures through the process of joining a petition.
