Look to Perth
WHEN will the Weatherill Government come to its collective senses? I suspect never. However, surely it is absolute folly to spend $160 millionplus on the O-Bahn extension to save a whopping 180 seconds on the journey.
By far the best option from a survey of the locals (The Advertiser, 16/6/15) would be to scrap the plan and spend only a portion of the money on enlarging interchange parking areas.
With this in mind why not send Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan over to Perth as their system at train stations and bus interchanges works a treat.
On second thoughts not the Transport Minister; I reckon Wayne Nicholls from Royston Park would do a great job, with his usual consultant’s fee of course!
