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).
