The Morley-Ellenbrook Line will serve Perth’s north-east suburbs to support existing communities with improved transport connections and create new communities through integrated station precincts.
To ensure the rail line represents the best outcome for local communities, work is underway on a route options analysis, including preliminary investigations, planning and concept design.
The options analysis will focus on potential locations for the rail line and design options for the rail line, including any grade separations, stations and the surrounding precincts.
The METRONET team will develop a comprehensive business case to achieve the best benefits for Ellenbrook and the wider Swan Urban Growth Corridor.
One option being considered is a 21km spur line from the existing Midland Line just east of Bayswater Station to connect communities in Morley, Noranda, Malaga, Bennett Springs, Whiteman and Ellenbrook.
Details on the construction method and timeframe will be developed and confirmed during the planning phase.
