Will future state governments stick to the plan?

Nalder gets digging in transport plan

A series of new rail and road tunnels, including a CBD train loop and a line from Stirling to Murdoch, could be needed as Perth's population grows to 3.5 million, Transport Minister Dean Nalder said as he unveiled the state government's long-term transport blueprint this morning.

One tunnel, a heavy railway line to Morley that could then be extended to Wanneroo and beyond, looked possible as an election committment, with the Morley radial line to later be extended to Wanneroo and eventually link up with the Joondalup line to ease capacity in that corridor.

Road tunnels could include a freeway from Stock Road under the Swan River and Nedlands to link to Stirling, and a second from near the Causeway to link to Berwick Street in Victoria Park and travel under Riverside Drive to Mounts Bay Road, Mr Nalder told a Committee for Economic Development of Australia breakfast.
