The Public Transport Authority has begun work to create a new bus depot at Brockway Road, Mount Claremont.
The project is part of a long-term strategy to ensure all Transperth bus depots are owned by the PTA and the State.
By replacing the leased and privately owned North Fremantle bus depot with the new Mount Claremont depot, the PTA will be able to ensure the efficient and effective long-term business continuity of its Transperth bus services in the Claremont bus service contract area.
The depot is being built on a 1.2ha site located west of Brockway Road and has been designed to accommodate a four bay workshop, administration building, bus refuelling facilities, bus wash facilities and parking areas for up to 55 buses and 65 cars.
When operational the depot will be open between 5 am and 12.30am, however bus movements will mainly occur between 6-8am and 6-8pm.
In August 2018 the PTA awarded a contract for the design and construction of the new bus depot to Pindan Constructions Pty Ltd.
