METRONET — THORNLIE–COCKBURN
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
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.
