Metro projects the fo­cus

South Western Times - - Point Of View -

At a time when South West com­mu­ni­ties im­pacted by the Bun­bury Outer Ring Road pro­ject are un­der im­mense stress, the Min­is­ter for Trans­port is still re­fus­ing to front up and hear lo­cal con­cerns about the pro­ject.

La­bor’s much spruiked prom­ises to im­prove the Aus­tralind Line have also failed to ma­te­ri­alise. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s pretty clear that re­gional roads and trans­port in­fra­struc­ture will be rel­e­gated to the bot­tom of the pile as the Pre­mier and Min­is­ter for Metronet fo­cus their at­ten­tion on de­liv­er­ing their Perth show­piece.
