4km extension begins to Northern Suburbs Railway


Earthworks on the four-kilometre extension of the Northern Suburbs Transit System from Currambine to Clarkson will begin this week.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said today the $10 million earthwork contract signified the start of an $81 million project to extend rail services to the growing northern suburbs.

Brierty Contractors Pty Ltd is the successful contractor, while the superintendent of the works is Gutteridge Haskins and Davey Pty Ltd Consulting Engineers.

The Minister said construction of the Burns Beach Road Bridge would be awarded by June. Tenders for these works had closed and were being evaluated.

Tenders for stations at Clarkson, Currambine and Greenwood would be called towards the end of this year.

The Northern Suburbs Transit System extensions consist of approximately four kilometres of double-track railway to Clarkson and two kilometres of single-track railway to a proposed rail care depot at Nowergup. The extensions will be located in the proposed future Mitchell Freeway median.

Ms MacTiernan said the delivery of new passenger railcars for the Clarkson service was an integral part of the total railcar supply of 36 three-car train units for the network extension incorporating the South West Metropolitan Railway to Mandurah.

Tenders for the supply of the new railcars closed on April 12 and it is anticipated that a contract will be awarded in mid-July.

Services to Clarkson are scheduled to begin in September 2003, when a sufficient number of new trains,capable of running at 130kmh, will be available
