Effective: 6pm Sunday 7 October - 14 October 2007
The new Mandurah Line is nearly finished. When it becomes operational, Transperth's train system will almost double in size and reach four times the population of the existing network. Before that can happen, we must connect the new train line with the existing Joondalup Line.
What is happening?
To link the new Mandurah Line to the Joondalup Line it is necessary to install, connect and test new track signalling, electrical and communication systems. To complete the work safely, power must be switched off throughout the work area, which will affect services on the Fremantle and Joondalup Lines.
The shutdown is planned to take place during the second week of the October school holidays, from 6pm on Sunday 7 October until Sunday 14 October.
How will this affect me?
Fremantle Line - No trains will operate during this period. Bus services will replace trains along the entire Fremantle Line.
Joondalup Line - On Sunday 7 October, trains will operate between Clarkson and Stirling Stations. Train replacement buses will operate between Stirling and Perth Stations. Last trains are 6pm from Perth and 5.22pm from Clarkson.
From Monday 8 October - Sunday 14 October, trains will operate between Clarkson and Leederville Stations on altered frequencies. Train replacement buses will operate between Glendalough and Perth Stations. Some passengers may choose to remain on the train to Leederville and then walk for the remainder of their journey.
Midland Line - Trains will run all stops to a special timetable during peak periods on weekdays.
Armadale/Thornlie Line - Trains will operate as normal.
Bus users - Transperth bus services will be more congested than usual, especially along the Fremantle Line.
Significant delays are expected on Transperth services and on the road so please be patient. Leave home early, allow extra travel time and plan your journey.
