Have you ever wondered why the stations on the METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line are being built from north to south and not the other way around?
Well, it’s all part of the grand construction schedule to optimise site access and efficiency.
The team cannot access the Tonkin Highway sections of the rail alignment until the Tonkin Gap Alliance has prepared the ground and made the highway rail ready.
The good news is this isn’t holding back progress on the new 21km line. In January, work commenced on Ellenbrook Station (the most northern station) and foundation works for the next two stations, Whiteman Park and Malaga, will ramp up in the coming months.
Morley and Noranda stations will then be built and the highway rail corridor prepared.
As well as preparing the highway median for the track, new bridges at Broun Avenue will be built creating the structures where the train will ‘dive’ under the highway to enter and exit the median and installing rail bridges across Morley Drive.
While works takes place on the southern section of the alignment, our team will continue to prepare northern sections of the alignment for track to be laid. Preparation works will also take place in Bayswater, the most southern point of the line, throughout the year.
