METRONET

METRONET

METRONET is the State Government's long-term plan to connect our suburbs, reduce road congestion and meet Perth's future planning needs. It is Perth’s most ambitious program of rail projects and Stage One will deliver approximately 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 18 new stations.

To meet network demand and cater for the anticipated increase in passenger numbers completed, 102 new railcars (17 six-car trains) will be purchased to bolster the existing Transperth fleet.

With a target of 50 per cent local content work to manufacture these new C-Series railcars, the project is a great opportunity for local businesses to get involved.

METRONET Railcar Procurement - Industry Engagement Briefing

In October 2017, the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI), in collaboration with the Public Transport Authority (PTA), hosted an industry briefing for the METRONET Railcar Procurement project. 

This session provided an opportunity for prospective railcar manufacturers and local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to meet and gain a better understanding of railcar requirements and the opportunities for future work.

The briefing enabled Government and potential manufacturers to understand the skills, products and services that currently exist within WA. It also helped to open dialogue by providing valuable networking opportunities for local SMEs looking to be involved in future supply chains, fleet maintenance and repair of the new electric railcars.
