All stations go for Perth’s northern corridor - METRONET


All stations go for Perth’s northern corridor

  • 16 December 2021

Work on all three stations on the METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension is now underway as foundation works begin on the Eglinton and Yanchep stations. 

Retaining walls are already towering over the rail corridor in Alkimos, and the team have now mobilised to the other two station sites.

Similar to Alkimos Station, building the walls will be the first focus of works at Yanchep Station, with the 150m long concrete walls to be built to accommodate the station structure and plaza. 

Once complete, Yanchep Station’s plaza will seamlessly connect each side of the railway across a 30m wide and 60m long plaza deck. This will require the biggest bridge deck pour of the project – more than 2,000m3 of concrete. 

At Eglinton Station, the crew have started to welcome the 660 concrete trucks required to deliver more than 2,300m3 of concrete which will be poured into the station structure and retaining walls.
