METRONET railcar strategy to maximise local jobs

METRONET will significantly increase demand for new rolling stock, and will require about 102 new railcars (17 six-car sets) to be added to the existing Transperth fleet.
The METRONET railcar procurement project sets a target of 50 per cent local content work for the manufacturing of new railcars.
Western Australian manufacturers are invited to attend a briefing to learn more about how they can get involved in the State Government's program.
The initial briefing will help the State Government clarify where local work and training opportunities currently exist, and how ongoing jobs and apprenticeships can be created.
Construction briefings have already been held for local engineering and design consultancies in the construction industry, in relation to the new METRONET rail lines and stations.
The October event will enable government and relevant manufacturers to understand what skills, products and services currently exist within WA, which may be available to support the manufacture and maintenance of a new design of railcars.
It will also provide valuable networking opportunities for local small to medium-sized businesses looking to be involved in future supply chain work.
The briefing will be held at Technology Park in Bentley on Thursday, October 26. Interested businesses must register online by Friday, October 20.
