Armadale Line Shutdown

The 129-year-old Armadale Line is set to be transformed through major METRONET projects – the Byford Rail Extension, Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal, and Thornlie-Cockburn Link

With the expanded project scope to include William Street level crossing, the planned 18-month Armadale Line Shutdown will now start in late-2023.

An extended shutdown means these METRONET projects can be built over a shorter timeframe and provide certainty for train replacement services.

Planning to reduce the impact of this disruption is already underway and the exact timing of the shutdown will be confirmed later this year along with further information on train replacement services.

For more information on the shutdown and to provide feedback, please visit Building For Tomorrow.
