The West Australian newspaper reported that The State Government’s public transport plan calls for an extension of the northern suburbs railway line from its existing terminus at Butler to the satellite community of Yanchep, with possible stops at Alkimos and Eglinton, as a “stage one” project to be completed by 2020.
The plan includes a light rail link from Yanchep to Two Rocks so residents would no longer have to drive to Clarkson to catch the train.
Funding is not yet decided but the plan acknowledges that the State Government and public transport users traditionally pay for the system. “A detailed funding plan and strategy needs to be prepared by the Department of Transport and the Public Transport Authority in consultation with the Department of Treasury and Finance for consideration by the Government,” the plan said.
