Escalator Maintenance Program

PUG and EQ escalator update


Nine escalators at Perth Underground and Elizabeth Quay stations will receive essential maintenance and service works as part of the escalator maintenance program. Perth Underground Station will have four lifts serviced, and Elizabeth Quay Station will have five escalators serviced.

Each escalator at Perth Underground will take approximately five days to complete except for Elizabeth Quay where both escalators need to be closed simultaneously resulting in an expected ten day closure.

Elizabeth Quay Station schedule of works

Escalator 3: October 7 – October 11
Escalator 4 and 5: November 4 – November 15
Escalators 1 and 2: November 18 – November 29

Perth Underground Station schedule of works

Escalator 2: October 14 – October 18
Escalator 5: October 21 – October 25
Escalator 4: October 28 – November 1
Escalator 3: December 2 – December 6


To minimise disruption to passengers the works have been staged so that only one escalator is replaced at a time, keeping access via stairs, remaining escalators and/or lifts. 

Hoarding will be in place the night before each scheduled closure to ensure the safety of our patrons.

The full service program is expected to be complete by early December 2019.

For passenger information please visit the Transperth website.  Should you require special assistance at the station, please call our Customer Service team on 1800 800 022 an hour before you intend to travel.
