Stations

Beckenham-Thornlie

 Works start at Beckenham Station where the single passenger railway to Thornlie Station will be duplicated. This will also involve duplicating the rail bridge over the Canning River.

 Thornlie Station was designed and built to accommodate a future extension of the Mandurah Line. Planned works include:

  • separating the linked marginal platforms and extending their length to 150 metres to accommodate six-car sets and a ‘through’ rail arrangement;
  • building a new concourse, with lifts, stairs and roof cover between the platforms;
  • modifying the car park to accommodate the platform expansion;
  • removing the existing shared path and installing a new one at the northern edge of the modified western car park;
  • relocating and replacing existing bicycle parking;
  • installing and upgrading station infrastructure, systems, services and amenities to meet current PTA and legislative standards, including new electrical and communications rooms on platforms, public toilets and staff amenities and a new radio tower; and
  • replacing the existing Western Power substation at the eastern end of the station to accommodate new station infrastructure and to address non-compliant earthing separation between the substation and Traction Power.

Nicholson Road Station

 Approximately 26-minutes from Perth by train, early design work determined the location, scale and general features of the future Nicholson Road Station. This work considered how the station will serve passengers on day one of operations, but is future-proofed to support medium to long term residential and employment development in Canning Vale.

 The station will be accessed off Canna Road, and include a bus interchange, cycling facilities and parking. The local road network will be assessed as part of the project once a contractor is appointed.

 The METRONET Office will continue to work with state agencies, local governments and the private sector to help transition the areas around the Nicholson Road Station into mix-use centres over time.

Ranford Road Station

 Approximately 29-minutes from Perth by train, Ranford Road Station’s design maximises its locations along on a high frequency bus route.

 Ranford Road Station will be accessed from a precinct entry road, off the proposed new Jandakot Airport Eastern Link Road to the south-east of the station.

 Built in a cutting approximately 8.5m lower than Ranford Road, the station will include an entry building and concourse connecting to the island platform.

 The METRONET Office will continue to work with state agencies, local governments and the private sector to help transition the areas around Ranford Road into mixed-use centres over time.

Glen Iris tunnel to Cockburn Central Station

The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will travel through the Glen Iris Tunnel, which was built as part of upgrades to the Kwinana Freeway. The extension will exit the tunnel between the Mandurah Line tracks and become a single spur just to the north of Cockburn Central Station.

 Cockburn Central’s existing island platform will be extended 150m at the northern (Perth) end to create the terminating platform for the Thornlie-Cockburn Link.

 The extended platform will offer at least 50 per cent shelter with an on platform building to house electrical equipment and staff facilities. Associated services will include security and passenger information systems.
