11 December 2018

  • State Parliament finished sitting on 6 December, but work never stops.
  • Bill Johnston has delivered a number of wins for the Cannington community in 2018.

School graduations will keep Mr Johnston busy, while his office remains open to assist local residents.

In Cannington, Mr Johnston has worked hard at fixing the Wharf Street Level Crossing. Resources were secured in the 2018-19 State Budget for planning and works to remove level crossings. Presently, the METRONET Taskforce is investigating options for removing the Wharf Street Level Crossing.

The Department of Communities housing development at the former Kinlock Primary School Site was announced, and the Request for Proposal process completed.

Mr Johnston hosted a Street Corner Meeting at the site to hear the views of residents, in keeping with his commitment that the development would be conducted in full consultation with the Ferndale community.

Mr Johnston is also continuing to work hard to deliver the Hester Park Revitalisation. $250,000 in State Government funding was made available to the City of Gosnells for the Revitalisation.

Comments by Bill Johnston MLA, Member for Cannington:

“I’m particularly proud of my work to fix the Wharf Street Level Crossing, in line with my premier commitment before the last election.

“I’m also working hard to ensure the Kinlock Infill Development is a positive addition to Ferndale and reflects the needs of the community.

“2018 has been a great year for Cannington, and I’m excited to continue working for the community in 2019.
