Investing in Transport

Investing in Transport Main Image

Our transformational METRONET program continues to see record investment, as well as other key investments in transport in this Budget, including: 

  • $4.8 billion in METRONET funding - which will continue to transform Perth's suburban public transport system. 


  • An additional $10 million to expand school zone speed limits to all warden-controlled crossings - helping keep our kids safe. The following Bateman schools and streets will benefit from this investment: 
    • Ardross Primary School and Applecross Senior High School will see the Riseley Street speed reduced;
    • St Benedict's School will have the speed on Bombard Street reduced; 
    • Booragoon Primary School will have the speed reduced on both Marmion Street and Norma Road; and 
    • Kardinya Primary School will see reduced speeds at two crossing locations on North Lake Road, near Le Souef Drive and South Street, near Pinewood Avenue. 
  • Completing the WA Railcar Program, with 246 new passenger railcards being locally built and manufactured right here in WA. 


  • Our METRONET program includes the construction of the Canning Bridge Bus Interchange.
