Armadale/Thornlie Line Closures

What you need to know about disruptions to train services during construction of Perth Stadium Station. 

The January Shutdowns of the Armadale and Thornlie lines are now complete. Thank you for your patience throughout the Shutdowns, this was a major step on the way to completing Perth Stadium Station.

Construction of the new six-platform Perth Stadium Station will continue and will be completed in time for the Perth Stadium opening at the start of the 2018 AFL season. 

While most of the construction work takes place while trains are running, there is work that needs to be undertaken when there are no trains on the line, and as such, closures of the Armadale and Thornlie lines are required.

Services will be cancelled as outlined below, however train replacement buses will be operating. This list will continue to be updated as the dates for the closures are confirmed.

Detailed information on each closure is available at least two weeks before the disruption.
