Planned rail disruptions this weekend
From Friday night, services on the Fremantle, Midland, Thornlie and Armadale Lines will be impacted by Perth City Link works at Perth Station.
At the same time, the Mandurah Line will be closed between Rockingham and Mandurah to allow work to take place at Karnup.
The PTA’s David Hynes said the station closure would start on the evening of Friday October 11 with services returning to normal first thing on Monday October 14.
“The bulk of this work is related to the Perth City Link project and will allow us to commission Platform 6 at Perth Station,” he said.
“The work on the overhead lines which deliver power to our trains is very complex, so we need the whole weekend to ensure it’s done properly.”
Replacement buses will be provided
Services affected are:
Fremantle Line closed: The last Fremantle train leaves Perth at 9pm; the last Perth train leaves Fremantle at 9.31pm.
Midland Line terminates at Claisebrook: The last Perth train leaves Midland at 9pm; the last Midland train leaves Perth at 10pm.
Armadale Line terminates at Claisebrook: The last Perth train leaves Armadale at 8.46pm; the last Armadale train leaves Perth at 9.32pm.
Thornlie Line cancelled: The last Perth train leaves Thornlie at 9.19pm; the last Thornlie train leaves Perth at 9.51pm.
Mandurah Line is closed between Rockingham and Mandurah.
Joondalup Line will not be affected.
Perth Station will be closed for the entire weekend; gates are closing at 10pm on Friday night.
Mr Hynes said the PTA had a well-rehearsed replacement bus operation that operated very efficiently during the major shutdowns in July and August.
“In some cases you will need to allow extra time to get to their destination so I urge all passengers to check the Transperth website or contact the Transperth InfoLine for more information.”
