Temporary Wellington Street bus station to open this weekend
The construction of a second temporary bus station in the Perth CBD is now complete.
The bus station, on the Wellington Street side of the Perth City Link site, will become operational this Sunday, July 6.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the temporary bus station on Wellington Street would supplement the existing temporary bus station on Roe Street.
“In January this year we closed the Wellington Street Bus Station (WSBS) so we could begin work on the Perth Busport,” he said.
“At that time, we shifted 75 per cent of bus services to the temporary facility on Roe Street.
“The remaining 25 per cent of services, which predominantly come from Perth’s southern and eastern suburbs, were stopped at the Esplanade Busport.
“Those services will now continue to travel through the city to the new temporary facility, on the northern side of Wellington Street.”
The WSBS demolition is complete and forward works on the state-of-the-art $249 million facility are underway.
Mr Hynes said if passengers had any concerns about how they would be affected, they could pick up a flyer, check the Transperth website or call the InfoLine on 13 62 13.
“Passengers can also sign up for Transperth’s free My Alerts email service, or download the Transperth app to stay up-to-date about any service changes,” he said.
“There will be timetable changes to these services, so please make sure you do your research so you aren’t caught out.
“This short-term inconvenience will pay dividends when the $249 million Perth Busport is completed.”
