Sta­tion far­ther out than ex­pected

North Coast Times - - NEWS - Lucy Jarvis

A PLANNED train sta­tion at the end of the Yanchep rail ex­ten­sion will be lo­cated far­ther north than some res­i­dents ex­pected.

The first pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on the Metronet project on July 21 at­tracted about 170 peo­ple, who learned where the three sta­tions in Alki­mos, Eglin­ton and Yanchep would be built.

At Two Rocks Yanchep Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion’s July meet­ing, Wan­neroo Deputy Mayor Nat San­galli said many peo­ple were not aware that the Yanchep sta­tion would be lo­cated away from ex­ist­ing devel­op­ment.

The sta­tion will be built north of Yanchep Beach Road, the light in­dus­trial area and St An­drew’s es­tate.

Pres­i­dent Peter Wim­sett said many peo­ple thought it would be near the Yanchep Cen­tral shop­ping cen­tre.

Cr San­galli said said the State Gov­ern­ment ap­peared to be de­sign­ing the rail ex­ten­sion to avoid is­sues ex­pe­ri­enced when the line to Butler was built.

“They were all very wellinformed on the vi­bra­tion is­sues that were a prob­lem at Butler,” she said.

“The anti-vi­bra­tion mat­ting had been missed in some sec­tions – they will be putting the mat­ting down not only where there are ex­ist­ing houses, but where there are houses planned.

There will be a sec­ond in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on July 31` at the Butler Com­mu­nity Cen­tre from 6pm to 8pm.
