Kar­nup rail pledge

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph Opinion - Paul Pa­palia Mem­ber for Warn­bro

I am writ­ing in re­sponse to re­cent mis­in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing rail­way sta­tions on the Man­durah line.

I can con­firm the McGowan Gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to the Kar­nup sta­tion on Paganoni Road, near Golden Bay, com­menc­ing in 2020 and open­ing in 2022 as promised be­fore the elec­tion. WA La­bor did not com­mit to build­ing a sta­tion at Lake­lands be­fore the elec­tion.

How­ever, a sta­tion at Lake­lands may be con­sid­ered as part of the fu­ture stages of the Metronet project.

The Lib­eral Party made no prom­ises of any kind in re­spect to pub­lic trans­port in Kwinana, Rock­ing­ham and Man­durah be­fore the elec­tion.

Res­i­dents of the south­ern sub­urbs can al­ways rely on WA La­bor to de­liver Metronet and im­prove pub­lic trans­port ser­vices.

Shoal­wa­ter res­i­dent Steve Parkins cap­tured this stun­ning im­age of Palm Beach Jetty in Rock­ing­ham re­cently.
