Now that we have a Labor government in WA we can start a whole new chapter on the promises that will benefit the Swan Valley and surrounding areas. Let’s start with METRONET as reported on our new Premier’s website:-
Six new METRONET stations will be built at Morley, Noranda, Malaga, Bennett Springs, Whiteman Park and Ellenbrook. Whiteman Park has recently been named Western Australia’s top tourist attraction.
Construction on the METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line will commence in 2019;
- The 21km spur line includes six new METRONET stations and is expected to be completed in 2022;
- WA Labor will bring a fresh approach to transport in the north-eastern suburbs, creating 3,072 jobs;
- The $863million rail line will service more than 200,000 local residents by 2026;
- METRONET will create more than 10,400 jobs and apprenticeships.
