Joint media statement – Work under way on first Armadale Line elevated station

Construction of the first elevated train station as part a major transformation of the Armadale Line is now under way, marking a significant milestone for the project.

The first elevated station to commence works is Carlisle - one of seven new stations being built as part of the upgrades.

More than 150 metres of elevated rail has been constructed in recent weeks to allow for the works at Carlisle Station to commence.

The new Carlisle Station will include two ground level entrances serviced by stairs, four lifts, 57 parking bays, and bike storage.

It will also provide new public open spaces underneath the station, and elevated rail with plans for a playground, fitness park, nature play, and shared paths.

New stations are also being built at Oats Street, Queens Park, Cannington, Beckenham, Armadale, and Byford.

It is anticipated construction of all seven new stations will be underway within the next few months.

Along with seven new train stations, the upgrades will see 5.5 kilometres of elevated rail constructed, and six hectares of new public open space created, while 13 level crossings have already been removed.

The Armadale Line upgrades include the Victoria Park Level Crossing Removal project and the Byford Rail Extension project - both jointly funded by the Albanese and Cook Labor Governments.

The projects are part of the METRONET program, in which the Australian Government has committed an investment of $4.18 billion.
