Thornlie-Cockburn Link

The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will be Perth’s first east-west connection, making travel around the city by train more flexible and providing a higher level of public transport service to Perth’s southern suburbs.

Connecting the Mandurah and Armadale lines will open up new opportunities for longer term developments around the future Nicholson Road and Ranford Road stations.

The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will support growth and accessibility across the southern suburbs by providing direct access to employment, sporting and recreation opportunities at Canning Vale, Cannington Strategic Metropolitan Centre, Burswood Peninsula and the eastern CBD.

Construction is expected to begin in 2019.

Community Reference Group

As we move into the next stage of the project, two Community Reference Groups (CRGs) have been formed to act as a sounding board regarding the delivery and impacts of the project throughout the construction phase. The CRG members were selected from 126 nominees and represent a range of demographics, geographics, interests, opinions and experience. The METRONET team will work with the CRG’s in the during the project planning, construction and delivery phases of the project.
