A COMMUNITY information session will be held tonight to bring people up to date with plans for the Aubin Grove train station.

The session will be held at the Cockburn Youth Centre in Success from 6.30pm where the Public Transport Authority will present preliminary designs for the Russell and Gibbs Road interchange upgrade.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder announced in April the road upgrade would form part of the $105 million station development.

A short formal presentation will be followed by a chance for community members to ask questions about the project.

Cockburn East ward councillor Steve Portelli encouraged people to attend, with a similar forum 12 months prior proving fruitful.

“We want to ensure there are no shortcuts, like with the walkways at the Cockburn Central Station,” he said.

“On the east side station it is uncovered, meaning if it’s raining you get drenched.

“We’re pretty happy with things but need to make sure we get it absolutely right.”
