Project Updated   14 May

METRONET involves the construction of approximately 72 kilometres of new passenger rail, 18 stations, multiple level crossing removals, as well as signalling and fleet upgrades across Perth's rail network. METRONET was Government of Western Australia's headline transport commitment at the 2017 WA State election. First proposed by the then-opposition Labor in 2013, the project will significantly expand Perth's current heavy rail network. The major works on the project consists of:

  • Bayswater Station 
  • Byford Rail Extension 
  • Canning Bridge Bus Interchange
  • Forrestfield-Airport Link 
  • Greenwood Station Multi-Storey Car Park 
  • High Capacity Signalling - Program of Works 
  • Lakelands Station 
  • Level Crossing Removal Program including Caledonian Avenue and Denny Avenue
  • Morley-Ellenbrook Line
  • Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal
  • New Midland Station and Multi-Storey Carpark 
  • Thornlie-Cockburn Link 
  • Yanchep Rail Extension

In addition, METRONET includes: 

  • a Railcar Program including the acquisiton of 246 locally manufactured C-series
  • Bellvue Railcar Manufacturing Facility 
  • High Capacity Signalling Program of Works.

A station has also been proposed for Karnup. 

The WA 2023-24 Budget saw a cost increase to the METRONET project, bringing the total cost to $10.5 billion. This included cost increases from the WA 2022-23 budget of $528 million for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, $244 million for the Thornlie-Cockburn Link, and $375 million for the Yanchep Rail Extension.

Cairns Regional Council is developing a new drinking water supply. 

The project comprises the construction of a water intake at Mulgrave River, a water treatment plant and reservoirs, and associated residential pipe network.

The High Capacity Signalling project will upgrade the existing signalling and control systems, which are nearing the end of their asset lives, to an integrated high-capacity Communications-Based Train Control system. The rail network will have capacity to grow and see more reliable and safe train operations.

The scope of this project includes:

  • replacing the existing ‘fixed-block’ signalling system with a ‘moving-block’ Communications Based Train Control system
  • replacing the Automatic Train Protection system
  • implementing Automatic Train Operation, and
  • implementing Automatic Train Supervision and Regulation to replace the existing Train Control System.

Infrastructure Australia's Business Case Evaluation identified the following options for the High Capacity Signalling project:

  • Option 1 - Asset life extension with moderate signalling modifications (Base Case)
  • Option 3 - Asset life extension with conversion from existing three-aspect signalling to fouraspect signalling
  • Option 4E - New signalling technology / European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2
  • Option 4F - New signalling technology / ETCS Level 2+ with Automatic Train Operation
  • Option 4B - New signalling technology / Communications-Based Train Control, and
  • Option 4J - New signalling technology only on those sections of the network requiring high capacity signalling and maintaining legacy signalling in sections of the network where high capacity signalling is not required.

Option 4B was found to be the preferred option.

A new Public Transport Operations Control Centre (PTOCC), located directly north of the existing Public Transport Centre in East Perth, is expected to include a centralised signalling equipment room, network control floors, and office space to support the High Capacity Signalling project implementation.

The Morley-Ellenbrook Line will include 21 kilometres of rail line from Ellenbrook to Bayswater. The five new stations on the line are:

  • Morley Station
  • Noranda Station
  • Malaga Station
  • Whiteman Park Station, and
  • Ellenbrook Station.

The project scope also includes the upgrade of existing Bayswater Station, with future station options planned at Bennett Springs East.

The line is expected to travel from Bayswater, down the middle of the Tonkin Highway north of Marshall Road, along New Lord Street, before finishing in the centre of Ellenbrook.

Geelong to Melbourne Fast Rail project forms part of Federal Government's National Faster Rail Plan. While the project is jointly funded by Federal and Victorian Governments, the project delivery will be undertaken by Victorian Government under the Western Rail Plan, and overseen by Rail Projects Victoria.

Passenger rail services between Geelong and Southern Cross Station take approximately one hour at an average speed of between 70 and 80 kilometres per hour. A report by the Victorian Auditor-General shows that during
peak hour, the current rail service is often over capacity.

The Fast Rail project will take a more direct route between the two cities, bypassing Sunshine in Melbourne’s west and instead travelling through Werribee. This new Werribee corridor will reduce the journey by up to eight kilometres, resulting in a shorter journey time of approximately 50 minutes, with the potential to fall below 40 minutes upon completion of all stages. The project’s major efficiencies will be delivered by Stage One through the development of tracks dedicated to regional services between Werribee and Laverton. 

The project will be delivered in stages, with only details for stage one between Werribee and Newport so far announced.

Stage One of the project between Werribee and Newport will include: 

  • new track dedicated to regional services (between Werribee and Laverton)
  • upgrades to bridges over main roads
  • station upgrades at Werribee and Laverton
  • new bridges and culverts over creeks and rivers, and
  • signalling and train control system upgrades.

Shepparton Line Upgrade will deliver more frequent and reliable services, and will allow new VLocity trains on the Shepparton Line. The project is being delivered in three stages.

Stage Three scope comprises:

  • signalling upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton, enabling nine weekday return services, and
  • track upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton, enabling speeds of up to 130 kilometres per hour.
  • expanded stabling for VLocity trains to support more services
  • a further 1.1km extension of the Murchison East crossing loop to allow a 1200m freight train and two 6-car VLocity trains to pass each other.

The expanded loop and stabling facility works previously included in the Stage Three scope of works were brought into Stage Two following a decision by the Federal Government in August 2021. However, these elements of the project have come back into the scope of the Acciona Rail and KBR delivery alliance.
