Planning works on the Thornlie-Cockburn Link and Yanchep Rail Extension are advancing with the release of a tender for geotechnical and groundwater investigations
The geotechnical studies will help the project team understand the ground conditions along the preferred alignments being considered for the two projects. This type of work is done as a matter of course in all major projects, and is crucial to plan construction activities and the ultimate design as it gives a clearer picture of underground and environmental conditions.
The Yanchep Rail Extension will extend the existing Joondalup Line from Butler Station with new stations at Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep.
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will create Perth’s first east-west rail connection, with new stations at Nicholson Road and Ranford Road.
Construction will begin on both projects in 2019.
