Fremantle Line - Showgrounds to Fremantle Closure

Thu 08 Oct - Sun 11 Oct

From the evening of Thursday 8 until last service Sunday 11 October, trains on the Fremantle Line will be cancelled between Showgrounds and Fremantle stations in order to facilitate works for the Claremont Station Project.

This will include disrupting services on Friday 9 October, which is a regular weekday.

The last full line services on Thursday 8 October will be:

  • Departing Perth to Fremantle at 7.45pm
  • Departing Fremantle to Perth at 8.10pm.

After that time, train services will only operate between Perth and Showgrounds stations. Passengers travelling beyond Showgrounds Station will need to disembark at Karrakatta Station and catch train replacement bus Route 906. Route 906 will operate between Fremantle and Karrakatta stations, stopping at all stations except Showgrounds Station, where there is no accessible train replacement stop.

Trains will resume with the start of timetabled services on Monday 12 October.

Train replacement bus stops are located near each station, check the Station Access Map to see where the stop is located at your local station. If you are travelling towards Perth from Claremont, the train replacement bus stop is being temporarily relocated to Shenton Rd. Download a map of Claremont Station.

Travel times on replacement buses are expected to take longer on Friday 9 October as a result of peak hour traffic conditions so passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.

Claremont Station Car Park

The car park on Gugeri St will be closed from the night of Wednesday 7 until first service on Monday 12 October to facilitate construction works at Claremont Station. The Transperth car park at Claremont Football Club on Davies Rd remains unaffected. 

Special Assistance

Passengers who require special assistance between Karrakatta and Showgrounds stations stations should call 1800 800 022 at least one hour before they travel.
