Rail Revitalisation Program

Rail Revitalisation Program

During the Armadale and Thornlie Line shutdown the PTA is undertaking major maintenance work between Kenwick and Sherwood stations. The work is essential due to the age of the infrastructure and will reduce the demand for shutdowns in the future.

The work includes the renewal of 15kms of track, 25 pedestrian crossings and 10 level crossings, and improving and installing new drainage systems. Upgrades to the overhead lines, communications, and signals facilities to connect to works being completed on the Victoria-Park Canning Level Crossing Removal and Byford Rail Extension projects are also part of the program.

Out of Hours Works 

Wanaping Road level crossing renewal

Major maintenance will be taking place in the area around Kenwick Station throughout June, including the renewal of the pedestrian and vehicle level crossings on Wanaping Road.

Rail will be moved inside the rail corridor between Austin Ave and Kenwick Station from Monday June 3 to Friday 6 June between 9pm and 5am. Traffic management will be in place at the Wanaping Road level crossing.

Underground cable pits will be installed at the Wanaping Road level crossing between 10 June and 21 June. Temporary detours will be in place to parts of the foot and cycle paths. North-south and east-west access will be maintained at all times, pedestrians and cyclists should follow traffic management and detour signage.

The renewal of the pedestrian and vehicle level crossings require Wanaping Road to be closed at the level crossing from on Monday 24 June to Friday 5 July for 24/7 works to renew the level crossing.

Traffic management and detours will be in place as per the below map:

During these works there will be an increase in vehicles accessing the rail corridor from Gayhurst Road.

While every effort will be made to minimise noise, some disturbance may be unavoidable.

If you have any questions on the works or have cause for concern during the work, please contact info@metronet.wa.gov.au or contact the 24/7 Infoline on (08) 9326 3666.
