signal and sign

Mr F.M. LOGAN: […] Two weeks later, the current government, as the party going to the election, announced that it would build the railway station, it would fund the railway station, and it would be called Aubin Grove. We have an awful lot of signs in Cockburn—not much action, but lots of signs. We have some very, very big signs on both sides of the freeway down there on Russell Road, and on the other side in Jandakot. They are enormous signs that happened to just appear before the writ; in fact, two days before the election writ.

Mr T.R. Buswell: They are very informative signs.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Very informative signs that just happened to go up with “The state government announces” just before we went into the election proper.

Mr T.R. Buswell: The same signs are at Kenwick station.

Mr N.W. Morton: They’re very good signs.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Yes, I think we have a few—all advertising paid for by the taxpayer of WA —

Mr T.R. Buswell: Information program.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: — announcing a Liberal Party promise in what was then the forthcoming election. Those signs are on the north and south side of the freeway as well.

Mr T.R. Buswell: They are very good signs.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: They are very good signs. A bit like the signs—in fact, no, Minister for Transport, they are better than the police station signs at Cockburn Central! They are much better because they are much bigger and there are more of them.
I just hope that we might get a railway station. I am hoping for the people of Atwell, Aubin Grove, Hammond Park and the lower part of Success that we get a railway station, not just the signs.

Mr T.R. Buswell: You will.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: I am hoping we might even get a police station.

Mr T.R. Buswell: I might invite you to the opening of the railway station.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Not just the signs for a police station.

Mr T.R. Buswell: If you’re nice, I’ll invite you to the opening of the railway station.

Mr F.M. LOGAN: That is very nice of the Minister for Transport. I just have this vision of me tied to the tracks and the Minister for Transport saying, “I’m glad you could make it”!

Mr T.R. Buswell: In fact, what I might do is replace some of those photos at Cockburn with a photo of you!

Mr F.M. LOGAN: Fantastic! The Minister for Transport can put my signs up anywhere he likes; he knows that!

Mr T.R. Buswell: You know the ones at the station of the commuters?

Mr F.M. LOGAN: That is fantastic! Yes, I know; the minister can put any pictures of me around Cockburn—I am more than happy!

Mr T.R. Buswell: It would help with our peak hour crush!

Mr F.M. LOGAN: The minister can put the state government logo on it if he likes as well!

Mr T.R. Buswell: It would keep the numbers down at peak hour!
