Only WA Labor is committed to public transport. Only WA Labor will build the Ellenbrook line.

With the current economic downturn, people are also concerned about financial pressures, job security, and want more support for small business. Improved services for youth and proper funding for education are also of vital importance to our community.

Jessica Shaw's Youth Forum Report

I have conducted extensive community consultation over the past 10 months and youth issues are repeatedly raised as being of primary concern to local residents. On 15th December 2016, I held a public forum to hear from the community about their concerns and discuss potential solutions. A range of local stakeholders were invited, including every local school principal and P&C group and the Ellenbrook police. Local parents (and their children) attended, and we were also joined by a number of agencies with an interest in this topic.

Ellenbrook Metronet - Consultation Process Report

On Sunday 3rd April 2016, the communities of Ellenbrook, Aveley and The Vines came together to discuss their transport needs and contribute to the development of WA Labor’s METRONET.

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to this vital discussion about our community’s needs. Your input is invaluable in helping to develop the transport infrastructure we need in Ellenbrook, Aveley and The Vines – both now and into the future.
