At the Yanchep Rail Extension, our NEWest Alliance team is implementing METRONET’s Sustainability Strategy to lessen the impacts of construction on the local environment.

To minimise the impact of Perth’s necessary railway works, NEWest Alliance has secured a parcel of land which will aid in Western Australia’s conservation of natural habitation and precious flora and fauna.

Before earthworks began, more than 500 grass trees were recovered and are currently being stored while works are underway for safekeeping. Before completing the Yanchep Rail Extension, these grass trees will be used to landscape the Alkimos, Eglinton and Yanchep stations.

Our CPB Contractors team delivering the project are also building Western Australia’s biggest fauna overpass which is designed to form an ecological link between the eastern and western sites across the rail line at Ningana Bushland. 

At 33m wide, the overpasses will allow safe passage for Western Quolls, Quendas, Black Striped Snakes and Western Bush Wallabies.
