The Morley-Ellenbrook Line will halve the public transport journey time for passengers travelling between Ellenbrook and the CBD.
Approximately 21km of new rail line will be constructed and will travel from Ellenbrook’s growing town centre, down the western side of Drumpellier Drive, through land north of Marshall Road and down the middle of Tonkin Highway, connecting at Bayswater Station on the Midland Line.
The line starts at Bayswater, where the Bayswater Station project is underway and will become a four-platform station with additional rail infrastructure and integrated bus services.
Stations will also be built in Ellenbrook, Whiteman Park, Malaga, Noranda and Morley, with a station planned at Bennett Springs East as development progresses in the area.
As part of the associated Tonkin Gap project, a new Broun Avenue bridge is being constructed to accommodate the future Morley Station.
