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 are being removed along the Armadale Line by raising the rail over the road at Mint/Archer Street, Oats Street, Welshpool Road, Hamilton Street, Wharf Street and William Street. New modern elevated stations are being built at Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park, Cannington and Beckenham stations. Welshpool Station has closed permanently. 

The Armadale/Thornlie Line is shut between Victoria Park and Armadale/Thornlie stations until mid-2025 to enable these works.

During the Armadale Line Shutdown, the Public Transport Authority will also be undertaking major maintenance works between Kenwick and Sherwood stations as part of Rail Revitalisation Program (pta.wa.gov.au).

Public Space

We are creating new public spaces by transforming around six hectares of land currently occupied by rail lines into flexible and enjoyable parkland. The design of the public spaces involves consultation with community and stakeholders to help shape the look, feel and function.

Read more about the community priorities for public spaces.

We are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the environment through the creation of a six-hectare city park, which will provide a nature-based parkland and reconnect communities across the rail line. Read more about how we're Greening the Rail Corridor.

Development applications for Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park, Cannington and Beckenham stations and public spaces have been submitted and include concepts that provide opportunities for the community to connect. 

Level Crossings

Get ready for a safer, smoother journey as we bid farewell to six level crossings along the Armadale Line, including:

  • Mint Street
  • Oats Street
  • Welshpool Road
  • Hamilton Street
  • Wharf Street
  • William Street.

With boom gates having been down for over three hours daily, drivers and pedestrians no longer face traffic congestion and inconvenience.

We’re building four kilometres of elevated rail along the Armadale Line, creating a safer way to cross the rail corridor.

In addition to improving road safety and reducing traffic congestion, we’re helping develop a more connected community. 

As part of the project, we're building modern and elevated stations, and vibrant public spaces under the elevated rail for community members to use with their friends, family and neighbours.

You may have noticed the huge 130 tonnes drill rigs in the rail corridor close to where Carlisle Station used to be…and you may be wondering what they’re for. They’re on site for piling works.
