Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal

Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal

The project is Perth’s first major elevated rail designed to improve public transport safety, create new and versatile public space for the community and reduce traffic congestion.

Five level crossings will be removed along the Armadale Line by raising the rail over the road at Mint Street, Oats Street, Welshpool Road, Hamilton Street and Wharf Street. New modern elevated stations will be built at Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park and Cannington stations. Welshpool Station will close with Oats Street and Queens Park stations providing improved passenger facilities.

Planning to remove the William Street level crossing and elevate Beckenham Station has progressed.

Public Space

A new public space will be created with around six hectares of land currently occupied by the rail lines transformed into a flexible and enjoyable community area. 

The design of the public space will involve the community and stakeholders helping shape the look and function.
