Train Shutdown Brochure - Transperth

Building the new Fremantle Line tunnel is almost complete.

To connect the new tunnel to the Transperth

rail network, two shutdowns are needed.

The first will take place during the second week of the

July school holidays, from 7pm on Friday, 12 July to last

service on Wednesday, 17 July.

From Thursday, 18 July trains will start using the new

Fremantle Line tunnel, and there will be platform changes

in Perth Station. The Fremantle to Midland through-service

will also return.

A second shutdown is needed so trains can switch

between the Fremantle and Joondalup line tunnels, which

improves how the network operates.

This will take place from 3pm on Wednesday, 31 July to

last service on Sunday, 4 August.

The shutdowns will impact all train lines in some way.

Love your sports?

Two AFL games will be impacted. The West Coast versus

Fremantle derby on Sunday, 14 July, and West Coast

versus Gold Coast on Saturday, 3 August.

For rugby fans, the Western Force versus ACT Brumbies

game on Saturday, 13 July will be impacted.

A new vision for Perth

Sinking the Fremantle Line from William to Lake/

King streets is essential to realising the Perth City

Link vision to connect the CBD and Northbridge, and

revitalise the area.
