Armadale Line Shutdown

The 129-year-old Armadale Line is set to be transformed through major METRONET projects – the Byford Rail Extension, Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal, and Thornlie-Cockburn Link

To enable work on these three projects to occur as quickly and safely as possible, the Armadale Line will be shut for up to 18 months, starting in early-2023.

 

An extended shutdown means these METRONET projects can be built over a shorter timeframe and provide certainty for train replacement services.

Planning to reduce the impact of this significant disruption is already underway and the exact timing of the shutdown will be confirmed later this year along with further information on train replacement services.

For more information on the shutdown and to provide feedback, please visit Building For Tomorrow.
