Where’s the scrutiny over the Thornlie-Cockburn Train Line?

The Roe Highway extension received significant media and public scrutiny for the perceived environmental impact.

The Public Transport Authority proposes to construct and operate a new 14.5 kilometre dual railway track to extend the existing Thornlie passenger line to Cockburn Central Station on the Mandurah line.

The proposal would require the clearing of up to 54.9 hectares of native vegetation, including 22.8 ha in Bush Forever areas. Up to 2.85 ha of Banksia Woodland of the Swan Coastal Plain Threatened Ecological Community, 27.64 ha of black cockatoo foraging habitat and 96 potential black cockatoo habitat trees are proposed to be cleared.

City of Gosnells resident, Lisa Kunze claims there is minimal scrutiny over the environmental impact of the Metronet Thornlie-Cockburn train line. She spoke to Oliver Peterson on Perth LIVE today.

The State Government is currently conducting community consultation for the Thornlie-Cockburn train line. Community consultation closes on June 17.
