THE East Perth Power Station should be filled with art, culture and history, and not be allowed to rot away, says Perth Labor MP Patrick Gorman.
In his first speech to federal parliament this week, Mr Gorman called for the city’s entrepreneurial spirit to be harnessed so opportunities like the power station redevelopment can be grasped.
“Perth is a city full of ambitious and entrepreneurial people,” Mr Gorman said.
“As a modern city we must plan across local, state and federal government for a metropolitan light rail connecting our CBD to the Burswood peninsula, Kings Park and the great universities of our inner metropolitan area.
“And urgency should be applied to lay the track of the Perth – Morley – Ellenbrook Metronet rail line as soon as possible.
“We must fast-track the train.”
