Well I hope the Feasibility Study gets the patronage estimates more correct that happened with both the Joondalup and Mandurah lines. In the former case new rolling stock had to be ordered 3 years ahead of the original budget and you only have to see the parking debacle all along the Mandurah line - no spaces left after 7:30am - to realise "they" got the estimates hopelessly wrong

Looks like yet another failure for the Liberal Government and a let down for residents of Ellenbrook....

Colin Barnett announced in Ellenbrook yesterday that the rumours regarding the line to Ellenbrook were untrue. The feasability study work has been moved internally, rather than being contracted externally. Watch the budget in May for the proof! The line will happen eventually.
