METRONET was the WA State Government's headline transport election commitment at the 2017 WA State election. First proposed in 2013, when funded the project will significantly expand Perth's current heavy rail network. The $2.95 billion first stage of METRONET taken to the 2017 State election will involve almost 60 kilometres of new track through:

- construction of a new rail line to Morley and Ellenbrook;
- construction of the Thornlie to Cockburn line, the first section of a circle line intersecting all existing and proposed METRONET first stage rail lines;
- extension of the Joondalup line to Yanchep; and
- extension of the Armadale line to Byford;

The first stage also includes the under-construction Forrestfield – Airport rail link, which is expected to open in 2020, as well as station upgrades, improved signalling on the Midland line and the removal of four level crossings across the Armadale, Midland and Fremantle lines.

The WA Government has also indicated the first stage will include planning work for an inner suburb light rail system.

Rolling stock for METRONET has been proposed to be at least 50 per cent manufactured locally as part of the project.

As part of the 2017-18 State Budget, $1.34 billion has been allocated over the next four years to start work on stage one METRONET priority projects.

In the 2017 - 18 Federal Budget, the Government announced that $792 million would be allocated towards METRONET, which would be sourced from the reallocated $1.2 billion Federal commitment to the now cancelled Perth Freight Link. METRONET's Federal funding is subject to a positive assessment of its business cases by Infrastructure Australia.

VALUE: $507.5M AUD
SECTOR: Rail
JURISDICTION: WA
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Unknown
TYPE: Greenfield

METRONET was the WA Government's headline transport election commitment at the 2017 WA state election. First proposed in 2013, the project will significantly expand Perth's current heavy rail network.

The 2017-18 WA State Budget confirmed $322.7 million will be spent between 2017-18 and 2020-21 (and a further $185.5 million beyond the forward estimates period) to procure new Transperth railcars.

In total, 102 railcars will be procured to provide for METRONET Stage 1 projects plus spare capacity for when railcars are out of service due to maintenance. The new railcars will be six-car sets, which provide additional passenger capacity compared to the three-car sets currently in operation.

The railcars are expected to be delivered progressively over 2021-2024 as follows:

- 36 cars in 2021 before the Thornlie-Cockburn line and Joondalup line extension to Yanchep opens;
- 30 cars in 2022;
- 30 cars in 2023; and
- 6 cars in 2024.

The 2017-18 WA State Budget confirmed $322.7 million will be spent between 2017-18 and 2020-21 (and a further $185.5 million beyond the forward estimates period) to procure new Transperth railcars.

The announcement in the Budget follows the WA Government stating that at least 50 per cent of rolling stock manufacturing is to be done locally as part of a 15 year railcar strategy.

The strategy would see railcars manufactured for:

- METRONET Stage 1;
- Renewal of the passenger railcars on the existing train lines; and
- replacements passenger railcars for the Australind train.

An industry briefing explaining the procurement process and local content requirements for the railcars was hosted by the WA Government and held on 26 October. At the briefing it was announced the contract will also include future fleet maintenance and repair of the rolling stock and the replacement of the Australind diesel fleet.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the contract will be called for by the end of March 2018, and will be followed by an interactive tendering phase with shortlisted manufacturers. The contract is scheduled to be awarded in Q1 2019.
