Rail set to revolutionise CBD of the north

Jones and Co property

The first trains are expected to carry passengers to Yanchep from 2022 and Jones and Co Director Kelly Jones says long-awaited rail line can’t come soon enough.

Yanchep Rail Extension – the 14.5km stretch from Butler to Yanchep – will give more than 150,000 future Yanchep-Two Rocks residents another transport option to travel to the CBD.

Kelly said the train line would reduce travel for residents in this rapidly-expanding suburb.

Travel times from Perth to the new stations on the $531 million Joondalup line extension include Alkimos (40 minutes), Eglinton (45 minutes) and Yanchep (50 minutes).

“As Yanchep heads towards becoming the ‘CBD of the north’, there’s more focus on how the rail extension will help alleviate congestion and increase the frequency of buses in the area,” she said. “This in turn is going to create so many amazing opportunities for residents, business owners and visitors.”

The Yanchep station will be the biggest of the three new stations and would be located in the footprint of the future Yanchep town centre. It will be built north of Yanchep Beach Road, south of Toreopango Avenue, east of Marmion Avenue and west of Wanneroo Road. The station and the ground-level concourse will include 1000 parking bays, secure bicycle shelters and bike u-rails.

Modelling from the Public Transport Authority for 2031 indicated more than 11,000 people would board trains at Yanchep daily. Another 4792 are expected to get on at Eglinton station and 3616 at Alkimos.

Transperth is expected to begin discussions with locals early next year to determine what bus routes would be required to serve the stations. Services to Yanchep National Park from the station will also be considered.

Work is now underway on the rail corridor north of Pipidinny Road in Eglinton to Yanchep.
