Hills Fig to remain at station

25 September 2003

A 50-year-old Hills Fig tree, previously earmarked for removal as part of a $5.5million upgrade to Bassendean Train Station, is to stay.

A study undertaken by the Public Transport Authority found the tree, one of two near the station, could be incorporated into the design for a planned bus facility on the site.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said the tree's reprieve was a great outcome for the community.

"This means that a tree of local significance can be saved without sacrificing the benefits the new bus station will bring," Ms MacTiernan said.

Several new mature jacaranda trees will also be planted as part of the station development.

Bassendean Station is one of several key stations on Perth's passenger rail network being upgraded under the State Government's Building Better Train Stations program.

The new station is expected to be completed early next year.
