METRONET Rollingstock Procurement - Industry Engagement Briefing
In October 2017, the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI), in collaboration with the Public Transport Authority (PTA) hosted an industry briefing for METRONET, the Western Australian Government's long-term blueprint to connect our suburbs, reduce road congestion and meet Perth's future planning needs.
This session provided an opportunity for prospective rollingstock manufacturers and sub-supplier small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to meet and have early engagement with the rollingstock requirements for METRONET.
The briefing enabled Government and manufacturers to understand the skills/products/services that currently exist within WA, and to open dialogue by providing valuable networking opportunities for local SMEs looking to be involved in future supply chains.
In addition to rollingstock procurement, the project will include future fleet maintenance and repair of the new electric rollingstock.
Information on State Government support to SMEs will continue to be provided on this site.
