The Claremont Station Project will mean that more passengers can catch the train more often once this multi-million dollar project is complete.
For Claremont residents this means a whole range of benefits, such as:
- Bringing Claremont Station up to current Disability Discrimination Act requirements, making it fully accessible for passengers with mobility difficulties;
- Extending the island platform to accommodate six-car sets;
- Direct access to the Forrestfield-Airport Link, without having to change at Perth Station; and
- A five minute service frequency in peak times between Claremont and Bayswater Stations.
In order to achieve these benefits the Claremont Station Project will include;
- Installing two turnback facilities west of Claremont Station, allowing trains to turn back to the city, instead of going all the way to Fremantle;
- Realigning existing rail infrastructure;
- Upgrading station facilities;
- Modifying the existing Principal Shared Path;
- Revising station access, including removing the pedestrian level crossings to improve safety; and
- Extending the platform to accommodate future six-car sets.
