The METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line has reached a major milestone with the Broun Avenue Bridge, over Tonkin Highway, demolished and new Morley Station designs released.
The bridge was removed to make way for a new, longer, and wider structure, which will accommodate traffic lanes and a bus interchange.
At more than 60m wide and 6.5m high, it will be one of Perth’s widest roads and bus interchange bridges, accommodating 12 bus stands.
The new bridge will lead down to Morley Station which will be built in the Tonkin Highway median. The newly released designs follow a similar design style to others along the Morley-Ellenbrook Line to give a familiar passenger experience.
Located in the heart of an established and diverse community, Morley Station is surrounded by a nature reserve and the local sporting grounds with an integrated bus interchange and multi-storey car park connecting passengers for the 15-minute train ride to the CBD.
Removal of the 38-year-old Broun Avenue Bridge required a complete closure of a section of Tonkin Highway, with crews working around the clock to remove the bridge structure.
Work is well underway on the Morley-Ellenbrook Line with ground preparation works happening at the future Ellenbrook, Malaga and Whiteman Park stations. Works have also begun on the rail tunnel structure at the Gnangara Road and Drumpellier Drive intersection and the road-over-rail bridge at Beechboro Road North.
