The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will be Perth’s first east-west cross line connection, making travel more flexible while providing a higher level of public transport service to Perth’s south-eastern suburbs.
Connecting the Mandurah and Armadale-Thornlie lines will open new opportunities for longer-term developments around the new Nicholson Road and Ranford Road stations.
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will support growth and accessibility across the south-eastern suburbs by providing direct access to employment and recreation opportunities while supporting about 1,680 jobs through the new stations and upgrades to the existing Thornlie, Cockburn Central and Stadium stations.
The Armadale Line Shutdown will begin on 20 November, with preparations ramping up for the removal of 13 level crossings, building seven new stations and the addition of 5.5 kilometres of elevated rail across three METRONET projects. Read more about the Armadale Line Shutdown.
