Project Features

Overview

The Morley-Ellenbrook Line will include 21km of rail line from Ellenbrook to Bayswater and will feature five new stations:

  • Morley Station
  • Noranda Station
  • Malaga Station
  • Whiteman Park Station
  • Ellenbrook Station

The existing Bayswater Station will be upgraded and a future station is planned at Bennett Springs East.

Estimated Journey Times
Passengers travelling from Ellenbrook Station will have a seamless 30-minute journey to the CBD, with no need to transfer trains. This is almost half the current travel time for local residents using public transport.

Connecting at Bayswater Station gives passengers from Perth’s north-eastern suburbs the choice of travelling to the Perth CBD, the Airport, Optus Stadium, Fremantle, Mandurah and more. The following is an estimate of the journey times to each station from the Perth CBD:

Bayswater Connection

Bayswater Station marks the start of the new Morley-Ellenbrook line. The upgrade of this existing station will improve connections across the railway, increase access to bus services, offer enhanced cycling and pedestrian amenities and create a rail bridge and station that fits within, and complements, Bayswater’s town centre. This is delivered as a separate project.

Morley Station

Morley Station is located within the Tonkin Highway median under the Broun Avenue bridge and will connect passengers to the Morley Galleria shopping precinct, surrounding businesses, schools and the local community through frequent bus services.

02A_Morley_Still_01_A [web]

KEY STATION FEATURES

  • Platform and access: Passengers can access the platforms, located in the middle of the Tonkin Highway lanes, via lifts and stairs at two convenient entrances - one from the northern side of the Broun Avenue bridge and the other from the southern side of the bus interchange.
  • Bus interchange: A dedicated bus interchange will sit above the platform on a separate bus bridge over Tonkin Highway. This will allow for new high-frequency bus services connecting the station to Morley Galleria, businesses and other areas around the community.Final timetables will be developed closer to when the Morley-Ellenbrook Line opens.
  • Parking and drop off: A 400-bay multi-deck car park to the west of Tonkin Highway will connect to the station via the bus bridge. The open-deck design will maximise security, natural lighting and ventilation. ACROD and drop off bays will be located on the ground floor and each level is accessible via stairs and a lift. Vehicle access will be via a new road to be built off Wotton Street alongside the reserve.
  • Safety and security: Best practice design ensures safety and security is always a priority when planning stations. Passive security measures such as good lighting and clear line of sight are vital to the station design.  All platforms and stations across the Transperth network (as well as our buses, trains and ferries) are regularly monitored in a number of ways. This includes via a team of highly-trained transit officers, mobile patrols, a high-tech CCTV system (with more than 10,000 cameras) and a 24-hour Central Monitoring Room.

COMMUNITY CONSIDERATIONS AND IMPACTS

To build Morley Station some changes in the local area will take place:

  • Skate Park and BMX Dirt Tracks will be relocated to allow the passenger car park to be built as close to the station as possible. The new location is yet to be confirmed.
  • Wotton Reserve: an access road to the multi-deck car park will be built on the outer edge of the playing fields to minimise impact. Minor repositioning of the fields will be required and will be completed as part of the project.
  • Broun Avenue bridge will be rebuilt to incorporate a new integrated bus interchange.
  • Road layout: traffic congestion is a common concern for communities around new stations. The ongoing design process will continue to assess the impact on the immediate road network, with some changes likely to occur. These will be developed with Main Roads and the City of Bayswater.

A concept master plan for the area around Morley Station is currently being developed to set the design vision and a high-level road map for the long-term land uses and planning and infrastructure delivery around the station to enhance the area and connections to Morley Galleria. More information can be found here.

KEY STATION FEATURES

  • Platform and access: Passengers can access the platform using a walkway from the Benara Road bridge or a pedestrian bridge over Tonkin Highway, with lifts and stairs, from the car park. The existing shared pathway that runs from north to south on the western side of Tonkin Highway will be maintained, although some minor changes may be needed. A new pedestrian underpass at the eastern end of the Benara Road bridge will also make it safe for people to walk to the station.
  • Parking and drop off: Passengers driving to the station can leave their vehicles at a ground-level car park on the eastern side of Tonkin Highway, which will cater for around 400 patrons and can be accessed directly from Benara Road. ACROD and drop off bays for ‘kiss-n-ride’ will be available with quick and easy access to the platforms.
  • Bus services: will provide valuable transport links from the station to the surrounding suburbs and beyond will stop at new bus bays on Benara Road, close to the station. A new pedestrian underpass at the eastern end of the bridge will also help connect bus passengers to the station. 
  • Safety and security is always a priority when planning stations. Passive security measures such as good lighting and clear line of sight are vital to the station design.  All platforms and stations across the Transperth network (as well as our buses, trains and ferries) are regularly monitored in a number of ways. This includes via a team of highly-trained transit officers, mobile patrols, a high-tech CCTV system (with more than 10,000 cameras) and a 24-hour Central Monitoring Room.

COMMUNITY CONSIDERATIONS AND IMPACTS

To build Noranda Station some changes in the local area will take place:

  • Passenger underpass: will be built at the eastern end of the Benara Road bridge, providing passengers with a safe way to walk to the station.

Whiteman Park

Whiteman Park Station will be built alongside Drumpellier Drive, just south of the entrance to Whiteman Park. It will serve the communities of Henley Brook, Dayton, West Swan and Brabham. The station will provide transport services and modern facilities to meet the daily transport needs of all passengers, including visitors to Whiteman Park and the Swan Valley - two of Perth’s premier tourism destinations.

Whiteman Fixed

 

KEY STATION FEATURES

  • Platform and Access: The universally-accessible station will be built on a combination of an earth embankment and an overpass structure. While the platforms will be elevated, the station entrance will be at ground level, connecting to a wide underpass beneath Drumpellier Drive and the new rail line. This will link future communities to the east, with the station. Passengers can cross Drumpellier Drive via a new signalised intersection that will replace the existing roundabout at Youle-Dean Road, immediately north of the station. Over half of the 150m-long island platform will be covered to provide passengers with a safe, sheltered waiting zone that includes dedicated seating central to the two platforms, and easily accessible passenger information and facilities.
  • Bus services: Regular bus services will transfer passengers from the station to surrounding suburbs, including the Swan Valley tourist area. The 10-stand bus interchange will provide weather protection for passengers, seating and passenger information facilities.
  • Parking and drop off: Passengers driving to the station can use the dedicated station car park that will cater for around 900 vehicles, including ACROD and dedicated drop off zones. Cyclists are also catered for with two secure bike-parking shelters.
  • Safety and security: Best practice design ensures safety and security is always a priority when planning stations. Passive security measures such as good lighting and clear line of sight are vital to the station design.  All platforms and stations across the Transperth network (as well as our buses, trains and ferries) are regularly monitored in a number of ways. This includes via a team of highly-trained transit officers, mobile patrols, a high-tech CCTV system (with more than 10,000 cameras) and a 24-hour Central Monitoring Room.

 

Whiteman Park Station and the Environment

METRONET is committed to minimising the Morley-Ellenbrook Line’s impact on sensitive areas around Whiteman Park. While the train line travels through the southern section of Whiteman Park, this land has not been a core part of the park for over 20 years and is not used by the public.

Locating the new line through land north of Marshall Road avoids important environmental areas and crosses Bennett Brook at one of its narrowest points and at a location conditionally endorsed by consulted Noongar representatives and knowledge holders.

North of Whiteman Park Station, the rail line will be located alongside Drumpellier Drive as much as possible to minimise its footprint on Whiteman Park.

Ellenbrook Station

Ellenbrook Station will be in the heart of Ellenbrook’s growing town centre, south of The Parkway and west of Civic Terrace. It will offer transport for the 20,000 residents living in and around Ellenbrook, allowing quick and easy travel to destinations such as Midland, the airport, Perth CBD and beyond.

KEY STATION FEATURES

  • Platform and access: Residents from Ellenbrook and nearby suburbs will have the choice of driving, walking, cycling or catching the bus to the ground-level station, with the station entrance facing The Parkway. Over half of the 150m-long island platform will be covered to provide passengers with a safe, sheltered waiting zone that includes dedicated seating and easily accessible passenger information and facilities.
  • Parking and drop off: Two car parks on each side of the station will provide parking for up to 500 cars, with dedicated drop off and ACROD bays for quick and easy access to the platform. Pedestrians and cyclists will connect to pathways from the car park to the platform, and cyclists can access secure bike shelters.
  • Bus Interchange: Bus services providing valuable transport links from the station to the surrounding suburbs and beyond will run from a dedicated bus interchange, accessed by a new road, with 12 covered bus shelters.
  • Safety and security: Best practice design ensures safety and security is always a priority when planning stations. Passive security measures such as good lighting and clear line of sight are vital to the station design.  All platforms and stations across the Transperth network (as well as our buses, trains and ferries) are regularly monitored in a number of ways. This includes via a team of highly-trained transit officers, mobile patrols, a high-tech CCTV system (with more than 10,000 cameras) and a 24-hour Central Monitoring Room.

 

COMMUNITY CONSIDERATIONS AND IMPACTS

To build Ellenbrook Station some changes in the local area will take place:

  • Ellenbrook Christian College: The train line will be built within a transit corridor reserved in the early 1990s as part of the development plan for the area. This corridor sits between the school buildings and oval used by Ellenbrook Christian College. The train line will be built on a raised embankment through the college, to allow a pedestrian underpass that will provide safe access for students and staff between the school and the oval.
  • Local road changes: A new road will be built to connect residents to the north-western end of San Lorenzo Boulevard. Once the new road is fully operational, the section between Vauclause Close and Messina Grove, where the train line will sit, will close.
  • Land development: Short-to-medium term development of around 20 hectares of land near the station is planned. Temporary station parking will be established to allow surplus government land to be developed in the medium-to-long term. A review of the current residential and employment opportunities in the area will also take place to encourage maximum use of the new train service, as well as develop opportunities for the local economy.
