TRANSPERTH ferry passengers will be protected from the elements after a shelter was announced for the Mends Street jetty.
South Perth MLA John McGrath said he had been advised by Transport Minister Bill Marmion that the Public Transport Authority would construct the shelter at the end of the jetty to provide weather protection for ferry patrons.
“For some time now ferry patrons have been calling for protection against the extremes in weather,” he said.
“And with passenger numbers on the Mends Street service doubling since the opening of Elizabeth Quay it is important that these people have proper shelter.”
Mr McGrath said it was envisaged that work on the shelter would be completed by March 2017.
