A new assembly and commissioning facility is being built in Bellevue as part of the WA Railcar Program, which will deliver 246 new railcars required for METRONET projects and the subsequent retirement of the A-series trains.

Situated at the end of the Midland Line, the site in Bellevue is an ideal location to assemble and commission new railcars.

The main facility will include a 180m-long building with a railcar assembly area, offices, workshops and storage areas, two overhead cranes and a heavy maintenance railroad with a crane capable of lifting 10 tonne.

Benefits

  • Newer, modern railcars to replace the ageing A-series and service the expanded rail network
  • Supply of six new diesel railcars to replace the existing Australind service between Perth and Bunbury
  • Boost to the local manufacturing industry
  • Supporting job creation
