Full steam ahead - first quarter of the shutdown

  • 23 May 2024

Gantry cranes Kediny and Yira in action installing the first 150m of elevated rail in Queens Park.

Since the Armadale Line Shutdown started last November, the Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal Project site of Perth’s first elevated rail has been a hive of activity.

Following piling works and the arrival of four purpose-built Gantry Cranes, the first 30m long, 130t L-beams were transported to site (a much-anticipated event for the project’s logistics and structures team) and have been installed to create the elevated rail.

Thanks to cranes Becky, Victor, Kediny and Yira, the first new elevated stations are well underway at Carlisle and Oats Street and all new station sites have been handed over for building works to continue. A very big thank you to the community for your patience and understanding at this busy time of critical works.
