Melbourne flights set back again

Confidence remains high for the South West tourism industry as direct flights between Busselton and Melbourne are pushed back once again.

Now pencilled in for July 17, travellers have been assured the direct flights from the Busselton Margaret River Airport will go ahead three times a week for the next three years.

Plans for another petrol station on the banks of the Vasse River Wetlands are one step closer to reality as the project gains planning approval despite community disapproval.

The Join Development Assessment Panel last week voted to give planning approval for the $2.08 million project which will see a 24-hour service station and drive-through built on lot 16 West street.
