Costings debate for $3bn Metronet pledge

The planned first stage of Labor's Metronet package with railway lines to Ellenbrook, Yanchep and Byford, and an additional line linking Cockburn and Thornlie, will have a price tag of $3 billion, according to costings announced today.

Further moves will include the removal of level crossings in four suburbs, a new station at Karnup and a replacement station at Midland.

The package would be rolled out over six years under the Labor plan, with the details ticked off by Curtin University professor David Gilchrist and University of Notre Dame adjunct professor Michael Wood.
