The second big event that’s happening in the ward, and that is due to Councillor Matic and council officers that have worked extremely hard on this project is a project that’s been a long time coming and that’s the installation of a bus through the suburb of Drewvale.
This is a suburb that has never had a bus service. Residents have to either rely on their own personal private transport or in some cases, actually walk to Browns Plain Plaza and pick up a bus there to get into the city. So this will mean that residents will no longer have to do that. I do have a lot of one car families out in that suburb as well as single parents. So the fact that they’ll now be able to get on a bus and travel into the city in the morning and in the afternoon during peak times is a wonderful thing.
I’ve already got residents mobilising to take that first bus on 14 October, so they’re very excited about it and I want to, once again, thank Councillor Matic and all the council officers for getting that project on the way for the residents. Thank you.
