Byford Rail Extension

Byford Rail Extension (Beenyup)

Those living in Serpentine-Jarrahdale will be able to enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle and connect to the Perth CBD in around 42 minutes.

The project will extend the Armadale Line approximately 8km south to a new Byford Station, removing level crossings along the way. Armadale Station will be rebuilt as an elevated station, easing road congestion, improving safety and connections, and creating new public space.

The Noongar place name for Byford is Beenyup (Been-yup) and the narrative is ‘place for digging for the warrain (native potatoes)’.

The full project scope will be determine when the contract is awarded.
