Yanchep Rail Extension

Postby Mr OC Benz » Mon Aug 21, 2017 2:25 pm

This is the thread for discussion specific to the Yanchep rail extension. For general Metronet policy discussion, please use the existing thread.

A project overview document has been released on the PTA's Project webpage. Key elements are:
- 13.8km extension of Joondalup Line from Butler to Yanchep
- Three new stations at Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep
- 49-minute journey time from Yanchep to Perth (46 mins from Eglinton and 41 mins from Alkimos)
- Will help develop activity centres and stimulate new employment opportunities in the Yanchep Strategic Metropolitan Centre and support higher density land use
- Explore value capture opportunities in the area.

Predicted boardings at the three stations in 2021: 8,765
Predicted boardings at the three stations in 2031: 13,520

Potential for an additional 8 million service kilometres and up to 56 buses in the area to support the extension.

Project Definition Plan expected to be completed by early 2018. Four year period to opening. A new dedicated METRONET website will be available in late 2017.
