Keeping the community informed is a key project priority. Community members can stay up to date in a number of ways:
Community Reference Groups
Four Community Reference Groups (CRGs) will be established for the construction phase of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line. The role of the CRG is to act as a sounding board regarding the delivery and impacts of the project throughout the planning, delivery and construction phases.
Ellenbrook Station Community Reference Group
The group comprises local residents, business owners and representatives from community organisations. The group provides feedback and advice to the Project Team about the construction of the new Ellenbrook Station and train line. Members are also encouraged to share updates about the project with their networks. The CRG members are:
Colin Ashworth, Ellenbrook Men’s Shed, Jasmine Backshall (resident), Paul Fernie (resident), Samantha Fisher (Ellenbrook Ratepayers and Residents Association), Matthew Hunt (City of Swan), Mel Jacobsen (business owner), Peter McLean (Ellenbrook Chamber of Commerce and Community), Chris Spencer (Ellenbrook Secondary School), Steven Wellbeloved (Ellenbrook Christian College), David White (Ellenbrook Christian College).
