Rail tops the agenda

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

COMMUTERS can ex­pect com­ple­tion of Forrestfield train sta­tion by 2020 as part of the For­rest­field­Air­port Link, which was started by the pre­vi­ous state gov­ern­ment.

This in­cludes sta­tions at Bel­mont and Perth Air­port, with $1.4 mil­lion al­lo­cated to the project over the next four years.

The Gov­ern­ment will un­der­take plan­ning and de­velop a busi­ness case for ex­tend­ing the Mid­land train line to Belle­vue, with fund­ing set aside to pur­chase land in for the fu­ture sta­tion.

It has fol­lowed through on its prom­ise for an over­pass at the in­ter­sec­tion of Kalamunda Road and Roe High­way, High Wycombe, with $86m to be de­liv­ered over the next four years.

Schools in the re­gion have re­ceived a boost, with $10m to the Dar­ling Range Sports Col­lege for new and up­graded fa­cil­i­ties de­liv­ered over 2018-19 to 2020-21. There will be new pri­mary schools built in Caver­sham South ($15.6m in 2018-19 and 2019-20) and Brab­ham ($15.6m in 2018-19 to 202021), as well as funds to Caver­sham Pri­mary School for an un­der­cover area.
