Funding the airport rail link is included.

I guess this means the link will go ahead despite various people in WA stating the airport was in a downturn.

It does seem that all the PT oriented projects will be built after the next election. Spending $5M to "plan" a later train purchase seems like the early stages of researching and then writing a spec.  Not really getting on with addressing urgent needs.
