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.
It is expected that the project will also help develop activity centres by stimulating new employment opportunities and long term residential and commercial purposes around the stations.
Road closure: Pipidinny Road, Eglinton (August 2021 to mid-2022)
Pipidinny Road between Marmion Avenue and Beonaddy Road, Eglinton is temporarily closed until mid-2022.
The closure is required to ensure the safety of workers and road users during the construction of the road-over-rail bridge at Pipidinny Road, the widening of Pipidinny Road, and the installation of a new sewer line under Pipidinny Road to service Eglinton Station.
Road users will need to use Hester Avenue, Clarkson or Yanchep Beach Road, Yanchep to access Wanneroo Road and signage will be in place advising detours.
The closure will reduce the works period by 11 months and be safer for road users, residents and workers.
