Construction

Construction Overview

claremont 1

Construction activities for the Claremont Station Project will mainly take place 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 made to minimise disruption to the surrounding community, the following impacts can be expected throughout the construction program:

  • Transperth service impacts due to temporary line and station closures;
  • Temporary traffic management arrangements;
  • Principal Shared Path (PSP) and footpath diversions;
  • Clearing of vegetation within the rail reserve and on PTA-managed land, and
  • Out-of-hours construction activity where full access to the rail line is required.

Major construction impacts including out-of-hours work and Transperth service disruptions will be communicated in advance to affected stakeholders. To keep updated, register for METRONET project updates and Transperth Travel Alerts.  

For questions about the project’s construction activities, please email info@metronet.wa.gov.au or call 9326 3666.

Upcoming out-of-hours work

Where access to the Fremantle Line is required to safely undertake construction activities, work will occur outside standard construction hours (Monday to Saturday, 7am to 7pm). Details of these works will be provided below as they occur. 

Current and upcoming traffic impacts

Principal Shared Path diversion: Graylands Road to Scotch College (July 2020 to March 2021)

To facilitate project works, Principal Shared Path (PSP) diversions are in place between Graylands Road and Scotch College as per the map below.


Temporary road closure: Claremont Crescent – Australind Street to Stirling Road (July 2020 to March 2021)

To facilitate the PSP diversion described above, and to allow construction vehicles to safely access the rail reserve, a temporary closure of Claremont Crescent between Australind Street and Stirling Road is in place as follows:

  • Westbound lane closed to create temporary PSP;

  • One-way eastbound movement maintained for school and local traffic only, as required.

Vegetation Clearing

Where clearing of vegetation within the Public Transport Authority (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, the PTA will undertake revegetation 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.

Reinstatement of the southern verge of Claremont Crescent west will be undertaken in consultation with the Town of Claremont.
