Help name bor­ing ma­chines

Midland Reporter - - News -

SCHOOL stu­dents are be­ing in­vited to en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion to name and dec­o­rate two bor­ing ma­chines for the 8km of tun­nels in the For­rest­field-Perth Air­port rail link.

The first of the ma­chines will be­gin its ship­ping jour­ney to Perth in the next week, with the sec­ond sched­uled to ar­rive later this year.

“We’re look­ing for a name for each ma­chine which relates to the stu­dent, their com­mu­nity, trans­porta­tion or engi­neer­ing – as long as it’s fe­male, sub­mis­sions can be as cre­ative as par­tic­i­pants like. They can even be madeup names,” Trans­port Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti said.

“We’re also look­ing for chil­dren with artis­tic flair to dec­o­rate the sides of the tun­nel bor­ing ma­chines with art­work, show­ing how the new un­der­ground rail line will ben­e­fit their com­mu­nity.”

Win­ners will be in­vited to the of­fi­cial launch.
