WA TRAINS, WA JOBS
METRONET Railcar Program
We’re looking for local companies interested in making parts for the future C-Series railcars that will run along our new train line: the METRONET Thornlie-Cockburn Link.
CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY ON TWO NEW TRAIN STATIONS IN CANNING VALE
As promised, Mark McGowan and I are delivering on our commitment to build two new Train Stations in Canning Vale on Ranford Rd and Nicholson Rd.
Works began at Nicholson Rd Station in September 2019 and construction on Ranford Rd Station will begin this year in 2020.
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will connect the Armadale and Mandurah rail lines with 17.5kms of track. It will be the first eastwest connection on our rail network in Perth.
It will also support around 1,680 local jobs.
The NEWest Alliance, comprising of CPB Contractors and Downer Group, was awarded the contract to deliver the Thornlie-Cockburn Link in December 2019.
The scheduled completion date for the Thornlie-Cockburn Link major construction is 2022, with trains scheduled to be operating in 2023.
