A multi-million dollar project at Claremont Station will improve passenger’s experience at the station, increase service frequency and allow direct access to the Forrestfield-Airport Link.
Passengers travelling between Claremont and Perth CBD will greatly benefit when the Forrestfield-Airport Link opens, with a five-minute service frequency during peak times.
To allow this to happen, trains must be able to turn (back towards Perth) at a second location on the Fremantle Line. This arrangement is similar to infrastructure at Cockburn Station on the Mandurah Line.
Following an analysis of potential options the Public Transport Authority (PTA) has identified Claremont Station as the preferred location for this infrastructure. Additionally, a broader upgrade of the station will be undertaken including improved bus facilities and bringing the station up to current accessibility standards.
