For some reason confirmation by the Government, including the Premier a while back there remains unbelief that the temporary re-opening of Millswood Rail Station will occur.
This is repeated in an article in the Eastern Courier this week. Even though initial contact with the department responsible for this (my old friends, DPTI) were unaware of it they have subsequently confirmed it will happen, just not as quick as the Government had promised.
Talking to people last night as I hand delivered our current newsletter in the section of Millswood west of Goodwood Road I received comment that indicated it will be used, and used well. By those living west of Goodwood Road. If this is true it will not be a temporary re-opening.
The resident profile of this area is fast becoming a young family demographic and they will likely prefer the train to the car to get into the city.
Well I know this much, the ailing footbridge over Goodwood Road giving us back safe access to the Station will be ready before the station is reopened with work under way to remove the Concrete Cancer completed.
