Works Overview

claremont 1

Construction activities for the Claremont Station Project will mainly take place between Showgrounds, Claremont and Swanbourne stations, with some additional work occurring west of Swanbourne Station. 

The works are currently scheduled to be complete during the second half of 2021.

While extensive effort is made to minimise disruption to the surrounding community, the following impacts can be expected throughout the construction program:

  • Transperth service impacts due to temporary line and station closures;
  • Temporary traffic management arrangements;
  • Principal Shared Path (PSP) and footpath diversions;
  • Clearing of vegetation within the rail reserve and on PTA-managed land, and
  • Out-of-hours construction activity where full access to the rail line is required.

Major construction impacts including out-of-hours work and Transperth service disruptions will be communicated in advance to affected stakeholders. To keep updated, register for METRONET project updates and Transperth Travel Alerts.  

For questions about the project’s construction activities, please email or call 9326 3666.


Standard work hours are Monday to Saturday, 7am to 7pm, and any out-of-hours works are indicated below and will comply with an approved noise management plan. For questions about project works, please email or call 9326 3666. For all out-of-hours works, please contact the site supervisor directly on 0419 753 161.

Out-of-hours Station Platform Works (from April 2021)

Full services on the Fremantle Line have resumed, however, out-of-hours work (7pm-7am) is underway to remediate the station.

Pedestrian underpass (Mid-2021 to September 2021)

The pedestrian underpass will be closed to allow for works such as installing CCTV cameras, permanent lighting, retaining walls, safety barriers and drainage infrastructure. During this time, the eastern pedestrian crossing will be available to use (east of the station platform).

There will also be the installation of sheet piles to the west side of the northern entrance (Claremont Crescent side) of the underpass to facilitate the installation of drainage soakwells.

Principal shared path (PSP) on Claremont Crescent (Mid-2021 to October 2021)

Once the PSP design has been approved, works will commence on the PSP construction, starting on Claremont Crescent East and then followed by Claremont Crescent West. Once the PSP has been constructed, the temporary bicycle ramp will be removed.

Gugeri Street (Mid-2021 to Late-2021)

Road realignment works are required on Gugeri Street to facilitate improved access into the pedestrian underpass, accommodate drainage requirements and to build the bus interchange. Traffic management will be in place to facilitate safe vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist movements. Notifications will be in place for traffic advice.

Works in the Gugeri Street Transperth parking areas will commence during this time to install two drainage detention tanks. Part of the construction methodology will require sheet piling to be installed to facilitate the safe installation of the drainage tanks. The piles will be installed through a vibration technique and these works are designed to drain the rail reserve and will improve street drainage.

PSP diversion: Graylands Road to Scotch College (July 2020 to September 2021)

To facilitate project works, PSP diversions are in place between Graylands Road and Scotch College as per the map below.

Construction Vehicle Access Requirements: Claremont Crescent – Australind Street to Saladin Street (July 2020 to September 2021)

To facilitate the PSP diversion, the installation of palisade fencing and the construction of the PSP, a temporary closure of Claremont Crescent between Australind Street and Saladin Street is in place as follows.

  • The current traffic management in place extends from Australind Street to Stirling Road, as per below.

  • From Friday 4 June the installation works will require the current traffic management on Claremont Crescent West to be extended to Saladin St. The installation works will take approximately 2 weeks and traffic management will revert back to the original arrangement (Stirling Rd to Australind St) till the PSP will be installed. When the PSP is constructed, traffic management will revert back to Stirling Rd to Saladin St.

    When traffic management is extended between Stirling Road to Saladin Street, pedestrians travelling either east or west may use the temporary PSP or footpath to the north of Claremont Crescent. Cyclists are to use the closed westbound lane on Claremont Crescent between Saladin Street and Stirling Road. 

Claremont Crescent East: Shenton Road and Stirling Road (until 10 September 2021)

Works are required along Claremont Crescent East to complete the principal shared path, finalise construction of the underpass and reinstate the road.

Claremont Crescent East will continue to be reduced to a single lane with a one-way traffic flow eastbound between Shenton Road and Stirling Road.

Due to the extension of traffic arrangements, street parking on Claremont Crescent East will continue to be restricted.

Residents allocated parking permits will be able to park where signage specifies on the northern side of the carpark adjacent to The Goods Shed.
