Minister responding: Hon R. Saffioti
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 15 May 2019

METRONET — THORNLIE–COCKBURN LINK

502. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I refer to the Thornlie–Cockburn Link section of the Metronet project.

(1) Will the minister please confirm that all work for the Thornlie–Cockburn Link is within its existing rail corridors?

(2) Will the minister please provide the details of the outcome of the negotiations with the local council to minimise the impact of the Jandakot eastern link road on Ken Hurst Park?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

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

(1) Some areas of land outside the existing railway corridor are required for stations, bridges, car parks and roads.

(2) The Public Transport Authority will provide access to the proposed station via a new access road linked to Ranford Road. Construction of the access road to the Ranford Road station will have no impact on Ken Hurst Park. The Thornlie–Cockburn Link project being delivered by the PTA is not responsible for the Jandakot eastern link road.
