Tonkin GAP MORLEY ELLENBROOK LINE (MEL)

Postby TP1462 » Thu May 30, 2019 11:07 pm

Early tender advice is out by Main roads WA MRWA for the planned and highly anticipated upgrade of the Tonkin GAP and ongoing transformation of Perth’s second north-south freeway between Great eastern highway and Guildford road which will see the very initial stages of rail construction start on the Ellenbrook railway project, the alliance contract will give a good indication as to how the Ellenbrook spur line will be integrated into the Midland/Forrestfield lines

Brief Description of Works: The project scope is likely to include the following:

Guildford Road Interchange –Modifications to interchange and bridges over Railway Parade and Guildford Road

Swan River Crossing –Bridge(s) over Swan River, reconfiguration of existing Redcliffe Bridge and modifications to Great Eastern Highway interchange

Rail enabling works for Morley - Ellenbrook Line – Works within the adjacent Tonkin Highway to facilitate construction of the railway including structure(s)

The route for the Ellenbrook has been confirmed construction will start later this year at Bayswater station where the line will spur off into the Tonkin freeway median

New railway – 21km rail line from Ellenbrook to Bayswater Station.

Ellenbrook Station – will be in the town centre, south of The Parkway and west of Civic Terrace. It will support the area’s growth as a major activity centre, while making the most of the development opportunities nearby.

Whiteman Park Station – will be near the entry to Whiteman Park and will serve the growing communities of Henley Brook, Dayton, West Swan and Brabham.

Bennett Springs East Station – future proofing of the line will allow for a station to be built in this area as population levels increase and planning progresses in the area.

Malaga Station – will provide efficient transport links to Landsdale, Alexander Heights, Ballajura, Malaga and Bennett Springs, connecting thousands of people to the Malaga employment hub.

Noranda Station – will be built in the middle of Tonkin Highway at Benara Road. It will serve the communities of Noranda and Morley, as well as Beechboro, Kiara and Lockridge.

Morley Station – will also be built within Tonkin Highway, two kilometres south of Noranda Station. Connections to the Morley Galleria, surrounding businesses and community will be provided through high-frequency bus services.

Bayswater Station – the upgrade of Bayswater Station marks the start of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line with work starting in 2019. Two platforms (four platform faces) at this station will accommodate the Midland Line, Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley- Ellenbrook Line services.

Estimated journey times
For passengers travelling from Ellenbrook to the CBD, the trip on the Morley-Ellenbrook Line will take about 30 minutes, almost half the current travel time for local residents using public transport. And connecting at Bayswater Station gives passengers from Perth’s north-eastern suburbs the choice of travelling to the Perth CBD, the Airport, Optus Stadium, Fremantle, Mandurah and more. The following is an estimate of the journey

Few additional points trains will be terminating at Bayswater station passengers will have to transfer to a Midland/Forrestfield service to continue into Perth this is going to be extremely dysfunctional, the proposed Henley Brook station has been removed making the new park and ride facility basically redundant, planning does however include provision for a future station at Bennett Springs and an extension into Muchea, whilst the Ellenbrook railway is going ahead and that’s to be commended the route selection is cheap & nasty just so labor can tick a box
