The Australian Government has committed $240.5 million towards the $481 million project.
The project is currently in the early planning phase with the WA Government working with local councils to identify the best location and alignment of the extension so that it supports plans for growth in the area, as well as creating an employment hub and boosting residential development.
The final business case is expected to be completed in late 2018. Construction timeframes will be developed during this phase.
