Claremont Station Project

Overview

A multi-million dollar project at Claremont Station will improve passenger’s experience at the station, increase service frequency and allow direct access to the Forrestfield-Airport Link.

Passengers travelling between Claremont and Perth CBD will greatly benefit when the Forrestfield-Airport Link opens, with a five-minute service frequency during peak times.

To allow this to happen, trains must be able to turn (back towards Perth) at a second location on the Fremantle Line. This arrangement is similar to infrastructure at Cockburn Station on the Mandurah Line. 

Following an analysis of potential options the Public Transport Authority (PTA) has identified Claremont Station as the preferred location for this infrastructure. Additionally, a broader upgrade of the station will be undertaken including improved bus facilities and bringing the station up to current accessibility standards.


Project Features

The Claremont Station project will include: 
  • Installing two turnback facilities west of Claremont Station
  • Realigning existing rail infrastructure
  • Upgrading station facilities
  • Improve bus facilities
  • Modifying the existing principal shared path (PSP)
  • Revising station access
The project is currently in development, with approximate project timing being: 
  • Late-2018: Design work commenced
  • 2020: Work starts
  • 2021: Expected completion

Construction

While the extent and timing of construction activities will be confirmed after the contractor is appointed, the following potential impacts are anticipated:
  • Passenger disruptions due to temporary line and station closures, with replacement buses operating
  • Temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours while realigning the shared path;
  • Noise and vibration associated with construction activities. Some construction activity is expected to take place outside of standard hours. 

All potential construction impacts will be clearly communicated to affected stakeholders as the project progresses.

Community

Community Advisory Group Meetings
A Community Advisory Group has been formed to work with the Claremont Station Project through the design and construction phase. The minutes of each meeting will be uploaded below.
