Escalator Replacement Project

From April 2017 you might notice some works taking place at Elizabeth Quay Station and Perth Underground. These works are part of our Escalator Replacement Program, which involves replacing a number of escalators at both stations, installing new lifts and amending existing staircase layouts. 

To minimise disruption to passengers the majority of work will take place at night. 

Perth Underground

Work on the escalator at the southern end of Perth Underground Station is now complete and open to the public as of late May.

Works have now moved to the centre of the platform to start upgrades on the escalator that runs from the centre of the Station platform to the centre of the concourse. This will be out of service from early June until late-2018, with hoarding to be erected around the work site, which will reduce the width of the central area of the platform.

Passengers using a mobility aid who plan to exit the train at Perth Underground Station should avoid boarding at the centre of the platform near the third carriage of the train.

Elizabeth Quay Station

Two new escalators are now open at the southern (Mandurah) end of Elizabeth Quay Station between the platform and concourse. Works are currently underway to replace the two escalators at the northern (City) end of Elizabeth Quay Station.

Hoarding will be in place around the work site reducing the platform width. Passengers using a mobility aid who plan to exit the train at Elizabeth Quay should avoid travelling in the following carriages:

  • Mandurah Line passengers should not board the first and second carriage of the train
  • Perth and Joondalup Line passengers should not board the last and second last carriage of the train.
