I don't think Karnup (Paganoni Rd) and Lakelands are meant to be the same thing, as Karnup station would be outside the Canning electorate which the announcement is targeting. I'd like it to be in addition to Karnup station since you could justify 3-5 stations in 23 km gap and still maintain 130 km/hr speeds easily.

Providing funding for Karnup Station would actually be useful considering the state government has committed to building it. No one is even thinking about building Lakelands Station - except for the federal government who just happen to notice it sits within a marginal electorate.

Even if the Liberals do win again, it is going to take far more than $10m to build Lakelands Station, especially when you consider Aubin Grove cost $72m.

This sort of infrastructure funding is about as wasteful as it gets. There is no evidence or data to support spending this money, it is as simple as burning cash on low priority projects to win votes - rather than actually trying to make a meaningful difference. Regardless of who you support, I think most of us can agree that how WA is being treated by the Liberal government it is pretty insulting.

Don't even waste your time listening to what the Libs propose in the campaign, you won't get that time back on your life.

The only commitments coming to fruition are the Labor commitments.

Don't hold your breath believing this either. No Federal government gives a rats ass about WA. Once the election is over, poof they disappear along with their election promises......

what a joke
That really is a joke. In all honesty, we should just forget about the Mitchell/Kwinana widening. That $50 Million should have been an extra $45 million for Lakelands Station. We should just up the Mandurah/Joondalup Line frequency instead to something near 3-4 mins in peak.

The Lib government's project funding above is I would expect a 50% contribution to each project with the state government expected to tip in the balance and possibly local government contributions in some instances. The Lloyd St extension for example has already had a section built by the City of Swan and I would imagine the City of Kalamunda would be expected to make a contribution to upgrading the single carriageway section of Abernathy Road south of GEHB.

These upgrades to Lloyd St and Abernathy Road will complement the much bigger project of the Roe Highway/GEHB interchange which includes grade separation of Abernathy Road/GEHB where Lloyd St will connect. This is half funded by the federal government as pare of a group of much bigger projects funded in an announcement last year. The state government is yet to fund it's half share of a number of these projects partly funded by the Feds last year.

As to whether or not a government honours a transport funding commitment depends on the state of their respective budget. If that goes pear shaped, it won't matter whether it's Liberal or Labor who's in office when it comes to honouring or not honouring infrastructure funding promises.

what i find to be an interesting comparison of the last two months worth of work at Hepburn Ave x Tonkin Hwy. both unshown sides look similar to the side that is shown.

Interesting time split down the Tonkin median at the Hepburn Ave interchange showing how construction has progressed in the interchange in the 2 months from late Dec to late Feb.

Down south, MRWA have published a Youtube video of the recent beam lift for the Murdoch Drive Connection bridge over the Freeway (image 2 above).

Work to repair the TBM screw conveyors is now scheduled for completion in late March. This compares to late Feb as indicated in the Feb 7 update.

Fark these people are useless at PR.

No one wants to read a wall of technical text. They could save themselves the time and just snap a few progress pics.

Mitchell freeway extension from Hester Avenue to Romeo Road to start next year.

https://thewest.com.au/news/wa/215m-...ng-b881138190z

This is hopefully the start of the state government coming to the party with projects the federal government part funded last year.

Transperth is proposing new route 96 to run between Leederville Station and UWA south via Thomas St and QEII Medical Centre.

This new route will provide a direct connection between the Joondalup Line and West Perth, QEII Medical Centre (including Sir Charles Gardiner and Perth Children’s Hospitals) and the University of Western Australia.

View a map of the proposed changes.

https://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/Por...osed%20Map.pdf

UWA people can see representatives from Transperth to discuss the proposed changes at Oak Lawn Tues 26 March 11.00am - 2.00pm.

Alternatively you can provide your feedback by emailing [email protected] or calling the InfoLine on 13 62 13. Feedback is open until 5.00pm on Friday 29 March 2019

Hopefully if this becomes a reality QEII, PCH will promote the service along with the 950 and 24/25 and 999 as alternatives to using a car and complaining about the parking fees. Hollywood Private and UWA already do this.

About time! A few of my personal comments though:

- I was about to say that the express services on the Joondalup Line do not stop at Leederville during peak hours, but I believe this is no longer the case? If stopping patterns have now changed (since the time I went to UWA anyway, a long time ago), then Route 96 would be a lot more beneficial for students living North of the River.
- Not sure how reliable the service would be, given that Thomas St and parts of Hampden Rd closer to Stirling Hwy gets quite congested during peak hours.
- The alignment on Hampden Rd west of UWA should be close enough for students to walk, although I feel for some reason that the route should loop around Hackett Dr and back to Mounts Bay Rd so that there'd be a bus stop on the eastern half of UWA? The bus should have enough length to weave across from Mounts Bay Rd to turn right into Hampden Rd.
- Nothing against QEII, but maybe the route should follow along Winthrop Ave entirely? Probably not a popular decision, although this will speed up the service travel time, albeit not servicing the area along Hampden Rd north of Stirling Hwy. The bus stops could be placed on Winthrop Ave between the multi-storey car park and the Children's Hospital, although you'd have to provide a crossing somehow (signalised at-grade/footbridge/underpass).

Would've been nice if it was a light rail, but that's another story...

We were meant to get one of those. Seems to have all gone quiet again...
https://thewest.com.au/news/wa/child...-ng-b88452821z

edit - although that bridge design isn't the best from a transport point of view if you just want to cross the road - takes you a lot longer than crossing straight (and being for the hospital it definitely needs to be disability compliant - so ramps or lifts).
