The work to upgrade East Perth Station will be staged to minimise construction impacts.
East Perth Station will remain operational during week days while the Station is being upgraded. The platform will be divided into two with work taking place on one half while the other half remains open (see staging maps).
There will be a number of weekend and week night closures to minimise the impact on peak hour passengers. Replacement buses will operate during all closures and passengers will be notified via the normal Transperth channels.
The number of parking bays at the station’s East Parade car park will be reduced during construction, as the area will act as a set down location for construction material. The ACROD bays in this car park will also be relocated as part of the project.
There will be a series of out-of-hour works to complete the station upgrade. All work will follow approved noise and environmental management plans. Local residents will be notified of any out-of-hours work in advance via letter.
During some out-of-hours work, when East Perth Station is closed, the pedestrian footbridge may also be closed. Local residents will be notified of pedestrian footbridge closures in advance.
Cyclists and pedestrians
As the East Perth Station car park will act as a set down area for construction material during the work, the number of construction vehicles entering and exiting the site via East Parade will increase.
As such, there will be traffic management in place on the East Parade Principle Shared Path. We ask cyclists and pedestrians to take care in the area and follow the advice of signage.
During construction, traffic management will be in place on East Parade next to the train station and on Summers Street on the West Parade side of the railway line. We ask road users to take care in the area and follow the advice of the signage.
During construction the Casey coach service will operate south of its current location in the Public Transport Centre car park (see map). Once work is complete, the original pick up location will be reinstated.
