Planning work is underway to extend the Armadale Line approximately eight kilometres south to Byford.
This early planning and research takes into account a range of considerations, such as station location, precinct development opportunities, connections, constructability and community impact.
The METRONET Office is working closely with the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale on developing a number of viable options for a transport solution which provides opportunities for urban development, however at this point we do not have a confirmed or preferred location for the station.
The intent of thorough planning is to identify the best location and alignment of the extension so that it supports plans for growth in the area, as well as creating an employment hub and boosting residential development.
Details on the construction method and timeframe will be developed during the planning phase.
It is estimated the project business case and Project Definition Plan will be completed in late 2018.
