Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 367 asked in the Legislative Council on 24 June 2021 by Hon Sophia Moermond

Parliament: 41 Session: 1


367. Hon SOPHIA MOERMOND to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I refer the minister to Metronet's Thornlie–Cockburn Link project and the major disruption of the Mandurah line from Sunday, 26 December 2021 until Friday, 14 January 2022.

(1) What additional services will be provided to alleviate pressure on the public transport system over the 20-day disruption?

(2) Will the minister compensate commuters by bringing forward the fare cuts promised by the McGowan government to commence prior to the disruption; and, if not, why not?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) The Public Transport Authority is currently planning rail replacement bus services and other options to support passengers during the closure period.

(2) The McGowan Labor government is working to introduce the two-zone fare cap from 1 January 2022.
