The Forrestfield-Airport Link project has reached yet another major milestone by successfully shifting the Midland Line tracks to their final location and connecting the Airport Line track to the wider rail network.
Thanks again to everyone who came and visited us at Yagan Square over the school holidays!
The complexity of the works happening for the Denny Avenue Level Crossing removal in Kelmscott, coupled with potential forecast heavy rains over the weekend, means extra time is needed.
Residents, businesses and community groups in the Midland area are encouraged to apply to be part of the new Midland Station Project Community Reference Group (CRG).
Closing the Denny Avenue level crossing is a major milestone, but it’s still a long road ahead for the project as roadworks and Kelmscott revitalisation works continue until late-2021.
At last, the most dangerous level crossing in WA is finally going. The first level crossing to be removed for METRONET will be replaced shortly afterwards by a new underpass at Davis Road.
Built in 1886, Claremont Station is the oldest station on the network and to ensure the iconic building stands long into the future some extra work is needed before the Station can reopen.
The Claremont Station Project is a multi-million dollar upgrade which will improve passenger experience, increase service frequency and allow direct access to the Forrestfield-Airport Link.
The METRONET team has again reached out to help in the wake of the recent fires at Wooroloo by supplying woolly bush foliage to local wildlife.
Recently the Claremont Station Project recently held an Aboriginal Cultural Toolbox to mark the halfway point of the two-month intensive period of construction.
Planning ahead has come in handy for the Thornlie-Cockburn Link, with the 21-year old Glen Iris Tunnel to be part of Perth’s first east-west rail link.
Want to be among the first to see the new C-series? Get down to Yagan Square these April school holidays to get up close with the new METRONET railcar.
From April 1, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will no longer be able to use the Denny Avenue level crossing.
While the project is called the Denny Avenue Level Crossing Removal Project, the team is delivering far more than just that.
Since main construction began more than four months ago, the site is a hive of activity.
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link has called on good spirits to safeguard the wellbeing, health and safety of all its workers through a traditional Aboriginal smoking ceremony.
