McGowan Government progresses Ellenbrook METRONET
The Government is calling for consultants to help progress the Morley-Ellenbrook METRONET Line.
A tender released today seeks planning and engineering services for the Morley-Ellenbrook METRONET project, which is set to start construction in 2019.
The tender is part of the Government's commitment in the 2017-18 State Budget to plan for key METRONET priority rail projects, along with construction funding for the Thornlie-Cockburn Link, Yanchep Rail Extension and Forrestfield-Airport Link.
The Morley-Ellenbrook Line will serve Perth's north-eastern suburbs and support existing communities with improved transport connections.
A successful proponent will work collaboratively with the METRONET team to form the Options Study Analysis for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line.
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.
Further tenders for other elements of METRONET will be released progressively over the next 12 months.
Local businesses are encouraged to tender for the works at http://www.tenders.wa.gov.au
