Arup will start soon on the detailed design stage of the new METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook rail line in Perth.
The MELConnx team (Laing O’Rourke Construction Australia with design partners Arup and Jacobs) has been selected to work with the Public Transport Authority of Western Australian on delivering this city-shaping project.
Some 21km long and connecting to the existing rail system at Bayswater, Morley-Ellenbrook will have five new station precincts with adjacent carparks and four bus interchanges, offering significantly improved travel choices for people living and working in the north-eastern suburbs of Perth.
Travelling through established suburban areas, the new rail line will include two tunnels, two pedestrian underpasses and an elevated station. For one stretch, the tracks will run in the centre of Tonkin Highway, and be serviced by two rail stations.
