Morley-Ellenbrook Line construction update - METRONET


Morley-Ellenbrook Line construction update

  • 1 March 2024

Rail delivery is in full swing along the rail line with 68 per cent of track completed. The majority of all rail track works across the Morley-Ellenbrook Line Project are scheduled for completion by mid-2024. North of the line, Beechboro Road North from Marshall Road was opened in time for the Christmas break and is now accessible to the public.


The rail viaduct structure at the new Bayswater Station is now fully formed with all major beams installed. Out-of-hours works will continue until mid-2024 and will include earth, drainage and civil works on the viaduct structure, as well as rail construction.

Morley Station 

Almost 250 tonnes of steel have been installed for the station’s steel structure, which is set to be completed by the end of February. The bus interchange and multi-storey car park are progressing well and rail preparation will start in late-February.

Noranda Station

In late November 2023, two pedestrian concourse overpasses were successfully installed at Noranda Station. The traffic team closed all southbound lanes of Tonkin Highway between Reid Highway and Morley Drive for 56 hours to ensure a safe and efficient install.

Noranda community members put on their art smocks in late January and became ‘artists for a day’, working with local commissioned artist Mel McVee on the public art mural for the Noranda Pedestrian underpass. The colourful banksia and wetland-themed mural will reflect the native flora and fauna of nearby Lightening Swamp.

Malaga Station

Malaga Station is progressing quickly and is almost 75 per cent complete. The steel structure is finished, flooring is underway, and service fit out and lift installation has begun. 150 light poles have been installed and over 20,000m2 of asphalt laid in the car park and around the station.

Whiteman Park Station

Structural steel installation and concrete works are complete and cladding and fit out has started within the station. Precinct works such as asphalting are also progressing in the areas around the station. Drumpellier Drive between Park Street and the Promenade is now open to the public and traffic signals have been activated at the Drumpellier Drive and Gnangara Road intersection.

Ellenbrook Station

Ellenbrook Station is complete, with finishing works done making way for planting, commissioning activities and ‘lights on’ within the station buildings. Public art works including metal arbour screens, indigenous murals and glass skylights are in place and set to make the station a welcoming area for commuters.
