LEGISLATION to enable the Yanchep rail extension was recently introduced into State Parliament.
The Railway (Metronet) Bill 2018 will authorise the rail infrastructure construction for the project and the Thornlie-Cockburn Link, and construction can start once it has been enacted.
The Yanchep Rail Extension project will extend the Joondalup Line from north of Butler Station and build three stations, at Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep.
Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said it was a milestone for the two projects that would improve the connectivity of Perth’s public transport network.
“This Bill authorises the construction of a railway from Butler Station to Yanchep, to service one of Australia’s fastest growing regions,” she said.
“The Yanchep Rail Extension will be a catalyst for major planned urban growth to facilitate better land use outcomes around train stations, which will ultimately lead to higher public transport patronage, shorter journey times and better access to jobs.”
The State Government expects to finalise the Project Definition Plans soon, with construction planned to start next year.
