Project Details


The first stage of the METRONET Railcar Procurement has begun with a pre-qualification tender to build the new trains released on Monday 23 April 2018.

The project will deliver 102 new railcars (17 six-car sets) needed for METRONET projects and 144 railcars (24 six-car sets) to replace the ageing A-series trains, which were the first electric railcars on the Transperth network. The $1.6b project will also deliver a local railcar assembly facility and associated infrastructure.

The METRONET Railcar Procurement project is both a key aspect of the McGowan Labor Government's Jobs Act and a WA Industry Link pilot project.  An important consideration of the project’s tendering process is a commitment to manufacture or assemble 50 per cent of the railcars in Western Australia.  Short-listed companies will progress to an interactive tendering process before a final supplier is chosen in 2019.

Delivery of the 17 METRONET trains, known as the C-series, is due to begin in 2021. The remaining 24 trains are expected to be online between 2023 and 2028.
