Morley-Ellenbrook Line

As we plan the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, we'd like to hear from the very people who live in the area about the rich history that shaped your community, why you choose to call it home now and what you'd like to see it become in the future.

The Morley-Ellenbrook Line to Perth’s north-eastern suburbs will support existing communities with improved transport connections and amenity, and encourage the growth of new communities through integrated station precincts.

Thorough planning is the first step in the right direction for every project and this is the same for the future Morley-Ellenbrook Line, to ensure the community gets the best public transport and planning outcomes.

As part of the comprehensive planning to date, the team has looked at more than 100 options for the project, and through a rigorous options analysis process, has shortlisted these to develop a Business Case which will recommend the best available option to the community and the State. This work is expected to be completed in 2019.

Hi Barb27

While a train line to Ellenbrook has been spoken about for more than a decade, the planning only started once METRONET was formed in mid-2017. Since then a lot of work has been taking place behind the scenes. The team are assessing the options for exactly where the line and stations will go and as part of this work, it’s important they look at how this new line can benefit the maximum number of people in the north eastern suburbs.

If you haven’t already, visit the METRONET website and sign up to receive project updates so that as soon as the alignment and station locations are finalised, you’ll be one of the first to know.

Kind regards
Clare, METRONET

I was led to understand that the Ellenbrook rail line would go directly to Perth, not Morley. Most residents of Ellenbrook want to go to the city of Perth, not to a shopping centre in Morley. We have enough shopping centres to visit nearby, such a disappointment after waiting all these years for a rail line Perth.

Hi Trac1

The Morley-Ellenbrook Line project team have considered all options as part of the planning for this line including looking at more than 100 potential options for the mode and route. This has involved taking into consideration various factors such as land development opportunities, community and passenger needs, environment, engineering constraints, constructability, value for money and community impact.

Connecting Ellenbrook to Hillarys is not part of the scope of this project, however the Transport Portfolio, which consists of the Department of Transport, Public Transport Authority and Main Roads WA, continues to plan for the long-term transport requirements of Perth to support the WA Planning Commission’s Perth and Peel @ 3.5m planning frameworks.

Kind regards

In today’s West Australian newspaper there is an article about a Hess Ligh tram trolley bus which I think would be fantastic to run from Ellenbrook direct to Morley. Ellenbrook direct to city! Ellenbrook direct to Hillarys limited stops! Would this ever be a consideration
