A no brainer to extend the Midland line along this route to Ellenbrook.

They better have good green belt zoning protections on the Swan Valley - or this route would just mean instant sprawl all the way up the valley emanating out from any stations.

I recall many moons ago Brigadoon once had like smaller semi rural residential sprawl proposed... hopefully it doesn't get reproposed in the future and also hopefully no more of that is built along the existing Great Northern Highway from Roe Hwy up to meet Bullsbrook.

Like with the new Perth-Darwin Highway getting constructed that will take off a lot of trucks and other through fare traffic off the Great Northern but as there is also existing nearby sprawl to the west and a railway to the east. Hopefully there aren't any changes in planning to allow developers to encroach towards the Great Northern from Dayton, Brabham and Henley Brook all the way to Ellenbrook.

Imagine if developers would be allowed to built up along West Swan Road and along to the western side of the Great Northern in exchange for upgrading those two major roads? Could they even do that? Like have some $$ from the sale of each lot to go towards duplicating those main roads. There could have thousands of small lots.

Also that railway line should remain the way it is and not be electrified for a new suburban railway to Bullsbrook.

I don't think development could occur there but what if it did once all the land to Two Rocks was exhausted?!?.

Swan Valley is unusual in that it has it's own legislation to 'protect rural character' etc - https://www.slp.wa.gov.au/pco/prod/f...df?OpenElement

Last govt. introduced a new bill, probably to loosen restrictions knowing them, but it didn't get up in time.

Can anyone explain why this wouldn't be a viable solution to the whole ellenbrook rail problem?

Surely it would be the cheapest, would increase utilisation of the midland line, provide better access to wineries around the swan valley (small factor i know but still). Also adds the possibilty of a spur off the midland line to new forrestfield station.. mandurah line in the future.

The only negative I can see is the population density between ellenbrook to midland leaves alot to be desired however trains wouldn't need to stop allowing good travel times.

Would perhaps have a slightly longer travel time compared to other proposals being thrown around. (however compared to having to swap trains at bassendean would be negligble)
