Road Closure Extension - Pipidinny Road, Eglinton (for METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension project)

Community engagement has now closed. Comments were submitted from 03/05/2022 to 19/05/2022.


The METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension project is proposing to extend the closure of Pipidinny Road, Eglinton between Marmion Avenue roundabout and Beonaddy Road from May 2022 to March 2023.

The purposes of the closure are to enable the safest construction of Eglinton Station, widen a section of Pipidinny Road, relocate services and construct the new road-over-rail bridge on Pipidinny Road.

Detours will continue to be in place via Hester Avenue and Yanchep Beach Road. You can read more about the extension at metronet.wa.gov.au/projects/yanchep-rail-extension/works.

About the project

The METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension will deliver the last proposed section of the Joondalup Line from Butler, 14.5km north to Yanchep to help support ongoing growth in the area and reduce congestion, while supporting about 1,370 jobs.

The extension will give more than 150,000 future Yanchep-Two Rocks residents another transport option to travel around Perth. For more information visit metronet.wa.gov.au/projects/yanchep-rail-extension.
