METRONET is the long term plan to connect our suburbs, reduce road congestion and meet Perth's future planning needs.
This is Perth’s most ambitious program of rail projects and Stage One will deliver approximately 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 18 new stations.
But it’s not just about public transport.
The job-creating program will see transport investment as a catalyst for land-use change in more than 5,000 hectares within walking distance of the new stations.
A team from across WA Government is working together to consider what people need for work, living and recreation within these future urban centres with a train station at its heart.
METRONET Stage One includes:
- Completing the Forrestfield-Airport Link
- Extending the Joondalup Line to Yanchep
- Linking Thornlie and Cockburn Central stations
- Planning and building the new Morley-Ellenbrook Line
- Extending the Armadale Line to Byford
- Relocating Midland Station and extending the Midland Line to Bellevue
- Building a new station at Karnup on the Mandurah Line
- Starting a program to remove level crossings on the Armadale and Midland lines
- Designing and manufacturing the next C-Series trains
- Planning for alternative transport options to better connect communities.
- Investigating increasing passenger parking at Mandurah
