Kenwick Station to reopen from October 27
Services at Kenwick Station will resume on Monday October 27 as the $7.5m upgrade reaches an important milestone.
The station was closed in March for a project to bring the station in line with the latest standards of the national Disability Discrimination Act.
Public Transport Authority spokesman David Hynes said the work involved completely demolishing the platforms and rebuilding them with new electrical and communication systems, drainage and tactile paving.
“The station was closed in March so that we could safely deliver this project with less risk to passengers, the construction team and passing trains while the works were undertaken,” Mr Hynes said.
“When complete, Kenwick Station will have new shelters, boosted lighting and an increase the amount of CCTV surveillance.”
He said some minor works remained to complete the project, but the bulk of the work was now complete.
“We’d like to thank all users of Kenwick Station for their patience,” he said.
Kenwick is the fourth station on the Armadale Line to undergo an upgrade since 2009.
Similar works have been completed at Queens Park ($3.7 million), Maddington ($5.3 million) and Beckenham ($8.1 million).
