Lo­cals at­tend Metronet trans­port fo­rum

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

MORE than 40 lo­cals re­cently at­tended a com­mu­nity pub­lic trans­port fo­rum in El­len­brook.

The fo­rum was part of a sec­ond round of com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tions to hear from lo­cal res­i­dents about what they want from La­bor’s Metronet pol­icy, fol­low­ing ear­lier con­sul­ta­tions in April.

The meet­ing was hosted by Swan Hills La­bor can­di­date Jes­sica Shaw, who ex­panded on the top­ics dis­cussed at the April fo­rum.

Top­ics in­cluded east-west bus ser­vices to Joondalup and links to other modes of trans­port; the for­mat for bus ser­vices be­tween El­len­brook, Ave­ley, The Vines, Bel­hus and Up­per Swan; and the lo­ca­tion, fa­cil­i­ties and sur­round­ing devel­op­ment of the train sta­tion site.

El­len­brook res­i­dent Rob Wat­son said some good points were raised.

He said it was good to hear what peo­ple had to say, see­ing how it was go­ing to af­fect the com­mu­nity and what it is go­ing to mean for his chil­dren as they start to grow up in the area. Some mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity who were at the fo­rum.

“We can start try­ing to plan as par­ents whether we want to stay in the area, (and if so) how we can ac­tu­ally make their lives a lot bet­ter within the com­mu­nity.”
