  Inner city transit - light rail

Making Western Australia a great place to live - that's the aim of METRONET, through the delivery of transport infrastructure along with the planning of vibrant communities.

As Perth's population grows, more homes will be built, more blocks subdivided, and more apartment buildings erected. To ensure this doesn't impact on our liveability and mean congestion in the suburbs, alternative transport solutions are a must.

The Department of Transport is meeting with local governments in Perth's central subregion to understand the transport and land use requirements for each area, as part of early stage planning for light rail.

Throughout 2019, the information collected will be combined with strategic transport modelling and land use investigations before the next step, preliminary network identification, kicks off.
