Bombardier's share of the contract is valued at $61m. Manufactured at Downer's facility in Maryborough, Queensland, electrical pre-assembly work will be undertaken by Bombardier at its Australian manufacturing facility in Victoria. The first train is scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2019.

The three-car trains will run in Perth and will help to meet the rising challenge of demand for commuter rail services from an increasing suburban population, and will support the Forrestfield Airport line extension which is due to open in 2020.
