Perth rail station closed again mid-October for ongoing works

Updated Wednesday, 25 September, 2013

PERTH Train Station will be closed once again in mid-October as part of the ongoing Perth City Link project.

The Fremantle and Thornlie lines will be completely shut down as part of the closure and other lines will have partial closures.

The station will be closed from 10pm on Friday, October 11 to first thing on Monday, October 14 with replacement buses in place.

It is also expected there will be several night closures in place over the coming months after the mid-October shutdown.

During October 11 to 14 weekend, passengers on the following lines will be affected:

Fremantle Line - closed

Midland - terminates at Claisebrook 

Armadale - terminates at Claisebrook

Thornlie Line - closed. 

Mandurah Line - closed between Rockingham and Mandurah. 

Joondalup Line - unaffected. 

Public Transport Authority David Hynes said the replacement buses had operated effectively during the major shutdowns in July and August.

“We are confident that we are doing everything we can to move passengers as efficiently as possible,” he said. 

Mr Hynes said as with the major shuts in July and August, the PTA had notified the City of Fremantle of the closure.

“As always, we have made early contact with the council to let them know about the approaching shuts, and will be advising a number of other stakeholder groups,” he said. 

Mr Hynes said there would also be a number of night closures in place over the coming months.

“Passengers will be informed of these service changes by Transperth’s communication channels including TravelEasys, signage, the website and the InfoLine,” he said. 

“It’s important passengers arm themselves with information about these changes by visiting the Transperth website for more information.”
