Western Australia’s METRONET program of works will continue delivering projects that will transform Perth as well as support and create jobs as the State Government allocates $6 billion through 2022-23 State Budget.

  • The first C-series train rolling out of the Bellevue Railcar Manufacturing and Assembly Facility for testing on the network
  • Lakelands Station is on track for entry into passenger service mid-2023
  • Peak construction activities across a number of METRONET projects (Morley-Ellenbrook Line, Thornlie-Cockburn Link, Yanchep Rail Extension and Bayswater Station)
  • Beginning major construction on the Midland Station, Byford Rail Extension, Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal, Greenwood Station Multi-Storey Car Park and the Public Transport Operations Control Centre
