Since nominations opened in late May, over 250 community members applied to be part of one of four METRONET Project Community Reference Groups (CRGs).
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link, Yanchep Rail Extension and Denny Avenue Level Crossing Removal CRGs received 126, 93 and 40 applications respectively.
Given the breadth of the Thornlie-Cockburn Link, and the density of surrounding residential areas, two zones were identified and two CRG's will be selected for this project.
The team is now busy assessing all nominations and selecting a panel that ensures representation of a range of demographic, geographic, interests, opinions and experience. Each CRG is expected to have between 8 – 10 members.
Successful and non-successful nominees will be notified in late July. The first CRG meetings for the three projects are expected to be held in August.
