The Western Australian Government is seeking the input of construction companies on METRONET to ensure the state government has an understanding of the market capability to deliver the $2.3 billion project.
An online survey is now open to the construction industry, giving engineering and construction organisations an opportunity to provide feedback on their capabilities, experience and critical success factors to design, procure and deliver major transport infrastructure projects.
“This survey aims to make sure we know what industry is capable of delivering, so we can get on with the business of delivering METRONET to WA,” Western Australian Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said.
“The McGowan Government is seeking to maximise local jobs in all its projects and has already held a railcar industry construction briefing.”
The first stage of METRONET will deliver around 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 18 new stations.
The first stage includes:
- Completing the Forrestfield-Airport Link
- Extending the Joondalup Line to Yanchep
- Linking Thornlie and Cockburn Central stations
- Planning and building the new Morley-Ellenbrook Line
- Extending the Armadale Line to Byford
- Relocating Midland Station and extending the Midland Line to Bellevue
- Building a new station at Karnup on the Mandurah Line
- Removing level crossings on the Armadale and Midland lines.
The survey can be completed here, and closes 18 January 2018.
