Understorey: Perth Transport 2017: Part 1 Ways and Means

Wednesday 14th December / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Since 2013’s state election promises, freeways have been widened,  the airport rail link is underway, but the light rail corridor has been completely abandoned, and plans for connecting the city might be called a moveable feast.   With the state government producing its aspirational Perth’s Transport Plan, imagining a Perth with a population of 3.5 million people,  questions are asked about where the money will come from to build our much-needed transport infrastructure.

Meet Liberal Minister for Transport, Bill Marmion, and the Labor Shadow Minister counterpart, Rita Saffioti, as they each outline their ways and means. Expect to learn a lot about Main Roads, Metronet, prospects for light rail along the knowledge arc, and an insightful account of how road and other infrastructure projects have been costed, by someone well placed to know.  (Photo: A.Glamorgan/E.PO’)
