Premier Colin Barnett and Transport Minister Troy Buswell today launched the centrepiece of the State Government’s commitment to public transport – a new light rail system to be called Metro Area Express or MAX.
A new light rail network linking Perth’s inner northern suburbs and the CBD is a bold project that will transform transport in the city, according to the state government.
The Metropolitan Area Express, nicknamed MAX, will run from the Balga TAFE campus south along Alexander Drive and Fitzgerald Street to the CBD and then divert west to the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre in Nedlands and east across theCauseway.
“MAX will power Perth commuters into the future, helping to reduce congestion into the city from our inner north and manage population growth as the city expands to as many as 2.7 million people by 2031,” the Premier said.
