Bus station security to be maintained during industrial action

21/11/06

A security presence at metropolitan bus stations in the evenings will ensure passenger safety at the high-risk time, during the two-day industrial action planned by Secureforce employees.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said she had instructed Transperth to contract security staff from other providers for this period.

Ms MacTiernan said she had also arranged to meet with the security guards’ union, the Transport Workers Union, tomorrow, to explore longer-term solutions to their concerns regarding the level of police support.

“Transperth will ensure there is a presence on bus stations usually covered by the guards during the critical evening hours from 5.30pm until the last service leaves,” she said.

“The safety of the travelling public has to be our first priority, so I hope the guards and their union will understand this response.

“The WA Police have advised Transperth that its officers will keep a special watch on bus station precincts and be extra responsive to complaints and alarms from these areas.

“In addition, transit guards will provide coverage at the Wellington Street Bus Station and at rail-bus interchanges.

“All Transperth buses are fitted with two way radios and drivers can call their bases for assistance if required.”
