METRONET

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 in 2013, the project will significantly expand Perth's current heavy rail network. The major works on the project consists of:

  • construction of Forrestfield-Airport Link
  • construction of a new rail line to Morley and Ellenbrook
  • extension of the Joondalup line to Yanchep
  • extension of the Armadale line to Byford
  • construction of the Thornlie to Cockburn link, the first section of a circle line intersecting all existing and proposed METRONET first stage rail lines
  • construction of a new Midland Station
  • level crossing removals on the Armadale line
  • High Capacity Signalling upgrade
  • Bellevue Railcar Manufacturing Facility
  • Rolling Stock procurement, and 
  • New Bayswater Station.

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

WA Government

2020-21 Western Australian Budget noted total allocated funding for specific METRONET projects as $4.9 billion. This included expenditure already incurred, and commitments over the forward estimate period to FY2023-24. In addition, the 2020-21 WA Budget included a $2 billion capital provision for projects under development at the time, including Morley-Ellenbrook Line, Byford Rail Extension, Midland Station Redevelopment and High-Capacity Signalling Project. These allocations and provisions included the Federal Government's commitments at the time. The Federal Government's May 2021 funding commitments have further increased these funding envelopes from each government.

The 2021-22 Western Australian Budget allocated an additional $817 million to the Metronet program, with funding to be split across the program with key allocations to the Armadale Line Level crossing removals, Byford Extension and High Capacity Signalling updates.

Nov 2019 The first of two environmental assessment applications was submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with respect to the Bayswater to Malaga Rail Works portion of the project. The second environmental assessment application was scheduled to be delivered to the EPA by early-2020 due to the more complex environmental values with respect to the remainder of the project area covering Malaga to Ellenbrook.
Nov 2019 The WA Government announced that an industry briefing for the Line and the wider METRONET project will be held on December 11.
Jan 2020 The WA Government issued a Request for Proposals for the main works contract. RFPs were due on 17 March 2020, with bidder short-listing to take place in mid-2020. The WA Government also announced that contract award was later in 2020. Separately, early works began on Bayswater precinct.

METRONET - High Capacity Signalling

PROJECT STATUS
Under Procurement
METRONET - High Capacity Signalling

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 Automatic Train Constrol System (ATC 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.
