Construction companies have been invited to a briefing to learn more about how they can get involved in Metronet.

Thousands of jobs will be up for grabs as the Metronet program progresses, beginning with the construction of the Thornlie and Yanchep rail extensions.

The briefing will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Wednesday, September 13.

On July 26, a briefing was held to familiarise local engineering and design consultancies with Metronet's land use strategies, priorities, timeframes and likely scopes of work, to help them in preparing future bids.

The latest briefing will offer similar information to the construction industry as they prepare for the surge in railway construction work. 

The Forrestfield-Airport Link is already under construction and will create about 2,000 jobs over the life of the project.

Interested businesses must register via Tenders WA.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said the briefing will enable local businesses to better understand how they can get involved.

"I would encourage companies, large or small, to send a representative to learn more about the projects before the tendering process begins," she said today.
