Fremantle Line closure next weekend

Fremantle Line passengers – including those planning to use public transport to attend next weekend’s Rottnest Channel Swim and the Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay – have been warned a line closure will be in place between February 23 and 26.

The closure, which has been planned for some time, is required for Main Roads WA to complete the demolition of the old Ashton Avenue Bridge in Claremont, which spans the railway line.

Power to the overhead power which supplies the trains needs to be turned off so workers can safely access the bridge site.

Rail replacement buses will operate on the Fremantle Line, but passengers are warned that bicycles and surfboards are not permitted on these services.

Additional maintenance works have been scheduled to make the most of the closure.

Other works include upgrading the pedestrian mazes at City West, completing track and rail bridge inspections at a number of locations, as well as maintenance and works in the Subiaco tunnel.

The last full-line services on the Fremantle Line will depart Perth at 7:30pm and Fremantle at 7:56pm on Friday, February 23.
Trains will resume with the start of timetabled services on Monday, February 26.

Passengers should allow extra travelling time and be aware that replacement buses may not connect with timetabled bus and train services.

For assistance, or to plan your journey, please call the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13, download the Transperth App or visit the Transperth website.
