Claremont Station Project construction activities will primarily occur between Showgrounds, Claremont and Swanbourne stations, with some additional work occurring west of Swanbourne Station.
The works are currently scheduled to be complete during the second half of 2021.
While extensive effort is applied to minimise inconvenience to the surrounding community, the following impacts can be expected at various times:
- Rail service impacts due to temporary line and station closures, with replacement buses operating ;
- Temporary traffic management arrangements approved by local government authorities;
- Principal Shared Path realignments, with attendant temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours;
- Clearing of vegetation within the reserve, as required; and
- Out-of-hours construction activity where full access to the line is required .
Fremantle Line Train Replacement Services
Where the Fremantle Line is closed to accommodate critical works, train replacement bus Route 906 will run from Perth Busport.
Passengers using Transperth services should allow extra time and plan ahead.

Temporary Lane Closure Claremont Crescent west (July 2020 – March 2021)
The temporary lane closure of the westbound lane is required to accommodate critical works along the City-bound Fremantle Line.
The lane closure, between Stirling Road and Scotch College, is expected to be enforced between July 2020 and March 2021.
Principal Shared Path (PSP) Impacts (June 2020 - March 2021)
Traffic management will be in place at various times until March 2021, to accommodate PSP diversions.
These diversions are required at various locations along the entire length of the PSP in Claremont and Swanbourne, which runs along Claremont Crescent, east and west of Stirling Road, as shown below.
Road and path users should take extra care and follow all traffic management directives in the vicinity of the works.
Where clearing of vegetation within the PTA rail reserve is unavoidable, the PTA holds a Permit to Clear Native Vegetation issued by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation under the Environmental Protection Act 1986.
The Permit authorises the PTA to undertake native vegetation clearing within the fenced rail reserve for the purposes of material lay down and rail realignment.
In due course, PTA will undertake replanting at:
- Shenton Road, east of Claremont Station;
- Claremont Crescent east, near the junction of Stirling Road, in consultation with the Town of Claremont; and
- Gugeri Street, opposite the Claremont shopping precinct.
PTA reinstatement of the southern verge of Claremont Crescent west will be undertaken in consultation with the Town of Claremont.
Out-of-Hours Works (As scheduled, between 7pm - 7am)
Where access to the Fremantle Line is required to safely undertake works, out-of-hours work will occur.
Subject to approvals and weather permitting, the following schedule of out-of-hours works for 2020 is currently anticipated:
- Friday 25/09/2020 - Tuesday 29/09/2020
- Sunday 30/08/2020 - Friday 04/09/2020
Full closure of the Fremantle Line will be required during these periods, with train replacement bus services running.

All out-of-hours works will be subject to noise management plans approved by local government authorities. Affected stakeholders will receive prior notification of out-of-hours works.
While all efforts are made to minimise out-of-hours works impacts, some noise, vibration and dust may be unavoidable and we apologise for any inconvenience.
These efforts include a commitment to deliver the majority of intrusive project works during normal working hours, between 7am and 7pm Monday to Saturday.
Noise, vibration and dust associated with construction activities and traffic may also be experienced during these periods and we thank you for your understanding.
