Construction companies are being asked for their input by the WA Government as it progresses the Metronet project.An online survey will be open to the construction industry to ensure the Government has an understanding of the capability of the market to deliver Metronet projects.
The survey, which closes on January 18 2018, gives engineering and construction organisations an opportunity to provide feedback on their capabilities, experience and critical success factors to design, procure and deliver major transport infrastructure projects.
Metronet is the long-term plan to connect our suburbs, reduce road congestion and meet Perth's future transport and planning needs.
It also provides new opportunities for businesses to get involved in Perth's most ambitious program of rail projects. Stage One will deliver about 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 18 new stations.

The first stage includes:
- Completing the Forrestfield-Airport Link;
- Extending the Joondalup Line to Yanchep;
- Linking Thornlie and Cockburn Central stations;
- Planning and building the new Morley-Ellenbrook Line;
- Extending the Armadale Line to Byford;

- Building a new station at Karnup on the Mandurah Line; and
- Removing level crossings on the Armadale and Midland lines.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said the survey would help the government know what industry is capable of delivering, so we can get on with the business of delivering Metronet to WA.
