This is Perth’s most ambitious program of rail projects and will deliver approximately 72 kilometres of new passenger rail, up to 18 new stations.
But it’s not just about public transport.
The job-creating project will see transport investment as a vehicle for land-use planning to create vibrant new communities.
All employment opportunities in relation to METRONET projects will be managed directly by the third-party contractors.
