METRONET vision: A well connected Perth with more transport, housing and employment choices.

The single largest investment in public transport that Perth has seen, METRONET is a job-creating program that will positively change how people live and travel in Perth.

With approximately 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 22 new stations, METRONET is a catalyst to turn over 8,000 hectares of land around new stations to desirable places for investment in housing, jobs and services for growing communities.

A team from across WA Government is working together to consider what people need for work, living and recreation within these future urban centres with a train station at its heart, with the objective to:

  • support economic growth with better connected businesses and greater access to jobs;
  • deliver infrastructure that promotes easy and accessible travel and lifestyle options;
  • create communities that have a sense of belonging and support Perth’s growth and prosperity;
  • plan for Perth’s future growth by making the best use of our resources and funding; and
  • lead a cultural shift in the way government, private sector and industry work together to achieve integrated land use and transport solutions for the future of Perth.

The Team

METRONET is set up to promote an integrated approach to project oversight, planning and design. However, as each project is at a different stage within the program, it allows flexibility for delivery arrangements. 

A METRONET Taskforce, chaired by the Premier, oversees the planning, financing and delivery of the program of projects.
Executive Committees focusing on key program areas - transport infrastructure, and station precincts - provide the Taskforce with recommendations on key decisions and issues. Membership of the METRONET Executive Committees comprises executive leaders from across the public sector, working together to achieve the wider METRONET program objectives, including optimising the opportunities for transit oriented housing and jobs. 

Feeding into these committees is the integrated METRONET Team, which draws specialists from across-Government. The team is responsible for planning and designing projects up to the investment decision. Once in construction and delivery, the team will monitor the project’s implementation.

The rail planning team within the METRONET Office draws from the Public Transport Authority’s (PTA) Infrastructure, Planning and Land Services team.

This is to make sure that new stations, lines and extensions integrate with the broader Transperth network, as well as draw from significant knowledge and studies conducted by the PTA which aim to move people where they want to go, as effectively as possible.
