METRONET — THORNLIE–COCKBURN LINK
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.
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?
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.
