Work recently commenced on the new sports pavilion at Ellenbrook Christian College in Perth, with WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti visiting the project site to turn the first sod.
The State Government provided $2.8 million of funding towards the new pavilion, as part of the METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line project.
The new pavilion will include a kitchen, changerooms, toilets, undercover spectators’ area and storage rooms, and incorporate the existing basketball courts.
The State Government has worked closely with the college since the Morley-Ellenbrook Line’s planning phase to ensure minimal disruption to students.
Works are progressing continue to progress on the train line, with the project expected to be complete in late-2024.
The 21-kilometre line and five new stations will service Perth’s north-east suburbs to support existing communities by improving transport connections and creating new communities through integrated station precincts.
“The METRONET project continues to take shape out here, and it’s so exciting for our community,” Saffiotti said.
“We’re really pleased to have provided this funding to Ellenbrook Christian College for this new pavilion, which means students will be able to enjoy sport and activities all year round.
“From the outset, we’ve had a really positive working relationship with the college, and we would once again like to thank the school and the extended community for their ongoing support for this once-in-a-generation METRONET project.”
