Train car­riage U-turn angers McGowan

Southern Telegraph - - News -

The State Gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to shelve plans to buy 300 more train car­riages was slammed by Rock­ing­ham MLA and State Op­po­si­tion Leader Mark McGowan on Mon­day.

Mr McGowan said he caught the train from Rock­ing­ham to Perth on Mon­day morn­ing and peo­ple were “jammed in like sar­dines”.

He said the sta­tions clos­est to the Perth CBD were par­tic­u­larly crowded and the State Gov­ern­ment needed to pro­vide ad­di­tional car­riages for WA’s grow­ing pop­u­la­tion.

The $1.2 bil­lion prom­ise was made in the last State Bud­get but looks as if it could be scrapped be­cause of the State’s weak­en­ing financial po­si­tion.
