The Yanchep Rail Extension will deliver the last proposed section of the Joondalup Line from Butler to Yanchep.

The 14.5 kilometre extension is underway and will see new stations built at Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep. Butler Station will become a ‘through’ station.

The project will give more than 150,000 residents another transport option and will cut public transport journey times by at least 30 minutes from the city.

In late-2023, tracks were laid through Eglinton and Yanchep stations.

It is expected the project will also help develop activity centres by stimulating new employment opportunities and long term residential and commercial purposes around the stations.


  • Reduced congestion and provision of alternative transport options for people in the northern suburbs
  • Creates thousands of jobs while providing improved access to employment opportunities in Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep
  • Increased reach and frequency of bus services in the area around each new station
  • Contributing to the long-term expansion of the greater Perth passenger rail and bus network
  • Improved liveability through the creation of vibrant urban centres with accessible connections, mixed uses, diverse housing options and opportunities for businesses to grow
