MLC derails Nats bid for train study

South Western Times

South West MLC Sally Talbot has refused to accept the National Party WA’s proposal to invest $3 million to conduct a feasibility study into a high speed train between Perth and Bunbury as it “has already been done”.

She said the study was completed by a Labor Government in 2010, but the plan had since languished under the Liberal-National Government.

“Now we have the National Party spruiking yet another feasibility study as they try to wriggle out of an earlier promise to put $1 billion towards a fast train to Bunbury,” she said.

“This “build it and they will come” approach is irresponsible economic vandalism and shows that the Nationals have no plan.”
