The Western Australia Government has released tenders for planning and engineering services for the Morley-Ellenbrook METRONET rail project, which is set to begin construction in 2019.
The successful proponent will work collaboratively with the METRONET team to form the Options Study Analysis for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, which will serve Perth’s north-eastern suburbs through improved transport connections.
To ensure the rail line represents the best outcome for local communities, the work undertaken will include route option analysis, preliminary land use investigations, planning and concept designs, including any grade separations, stations and surrounding precincts.
“Work on the planning stages of Ellenbrook METRONET has entered high gear and now we are looking for local businesses to help flesh out the planning which is already under way,” said Western Australian Transport Minister Rita Saffioti.
“We’re determined to bring even more METRONET projects closer to fruition in the coming months, and I am particularly looking forward to creating more jobs, more opportunities for business and more integrated transport projects to benefit WA.”
Further tenders for other elements of METRONET will be released progressively over the next 12 months.
