Thanks for the replies Mouse.
Claremont certainly seems to be an appropriate destination for a shuttle from the Midland / FAL line. Although, I didn’t expect the six car platform to be a short term requirement for that yet. But any improvement is good and if DDA improvements and grade separation is part of it then all the better.
The other line I found interesting in that media statement: “precincts are also being planned at other stations between Claremont and Bayswater, such as Meltham, West Leederville, Shenton Park and City West.” I guess that there is some TOD concept planning on file for almost every station, but that statement may give us an indication of priorities for stations to get longer platforms first - although I’m not expecting them all in a great hurry.
We will just have to wait to see any significant budget commitments for platform extension at Subiaco. There was something in a PTA annual report a couple of years ago about acquiring land for the future Subi platform extension. West Leederville of course now has an entire spare platform.
