The Western Australia (WA) Government has announced the completion of the new METRONET Ellenbrook Station in Perth, the capital of the state. 

This marks a step forward in the Cook Labor Government’s initiative to establish a 21km rail line to Ellenbrook.  

Ellenbrook Station, which began construction in 2022, is now the first station on the Morley-Ellenbrook Line to reach completion. 

This first station out of five planned for the project has been constructed using more than 346 tonnes (t) of steel and 1,160t of concrete. 

Located in Ellenbrook’s town centre, the station is intended to provide improved transport options for the area’s 46,000 residents.  

WA Premier Roger Cook said: “METRONET is reshaping our city and connecting tens of thousands of people in the suburbs to our world-class rail network.

“The METRONET Morley-Ellenbook Line is powering towards completion – and when it opens later this year it will slash travel times for people across our north-eastern suburbs.” 

The station’s modern amenities include a 12-stand bus interchange and 500 parking bays, with provisions for ACROD parking (for those with disabilities). 

Its design is said to have been recognised with a five-star Green Star Design Review Rating, incorporating 200 solar panels and ten electric vehicle (EV) charging bays.  

The station offers a 150m-long sheltered island platform, with seating and accessible passenger information and facilities. 

Once operational, the line is expected to reduce travel time to Perth to approximately 30 minutes, offering a two-zone fare that starts at A$4.08 ($2.65).  

This is expected to halve the current public transport travel time for residents. The project has also contributed to the local economy by employing approximately 400 workers. 

Last month, the state government announced the commencement of construction on the first elevated train station as part of the METRONET Armadale Line upgrades.
