City not happy

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth Kensington -

From Page 1 South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty says that given the work the coun­cil had put into the pro­posed sta­tion and sur­round­ing precinct, it was dis­ap­point­ing the project has stalled.

“The topic has been raised with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the gov­ern­ment re­peat­edly since then but no com­mit­ment has been made to progress the pro­vi­sion of the rail­way to date,” she said.

“Pro­vid­ing a rail travel op­tion would fa­cil­i­tate and en­cour­age the use of public trans­port, re­sult­ing in re­duced traf­fic con­ges­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pacts such as pol­lu­tion by green­house gases and noise pol­lu­tion. Over­all, it would be bet­ter for the health and well­be­ing of the City’s res­i­dents.”
