Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal

Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal

The project is Perth’s first major elevated rail designed to improve public transport safety, create new and versatile public space for the community and reduce traffic congestion.

Six level crossings will be removed along the Armadale Line by raising the rail over the road at Mint Street, Oats Street, Welshpool Road, Hamilton Street, Wharf Street and William Street. New modern elevated stations will be built at Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park, Cannington and Beckenham stations. Welshpool Station will close.

Planning to remove the William Street level crossing and elevate Beckenham Station has progressed.

Public Space

A new public space will be created with around six hectares of land currently occupied by the rail lines transformed into a flexible and enjoyable community area. The design of the public space has involved the community and stakeholders to help shape the look, feel and function.

Consultation has commenced with key stakeholders from the Town of Victoria Park and the City of Canning, community groups, Community Reference Group members and the general public.

Consultation will begin on the public spaces around Beckenham Station in early-2023.
