Route 233 would operate between Gosnells and Cockburn Central stations, via Southern River, Harrisdale and Piara Waters. To facilitate the introduction of this new route, changes would be made to routes 210 and 211 in Gosnells and Route 517 in Southern River.
New Route 233
The proposed new bus route provides a more convenient public transport option for residents of Southern River, Harrisdale and Piara Waters by increasing connections to the Transperth network, including improved access to Cockburn Central Station.
It is proposed the route will operate seven days a week at the following times:
- Every 15 minutes during weekday peak periods
- Every 60 minutes during off peak weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Services would be timed to formally connect with train services at Gosnells Station, with every effort being made to also provide convenient transfers at Cockburn Central Station.
There is also an alternative route which would operate via Aspiri Prom, instead of Armadale Rd, taking between three to five minutes longer.
Changes to Routes 210 & 211
To reduce overlap with the proposed Route 233 and in order to make routes 210 and 211 more direct and improve community access in areas not currently well served by public transport, Transperth is proposing to make the following route changes:
- Route 210 would travel a more direct path along Fremantle Rd to Gosnells Station. The service would no longer travel along George, Crandon, King or Eudoria Streets, or Stalker Rd. Residents currently boarding services at these locations would need to use routes 231 or 232 or board along Fremantle Rd (between George and Wheatley St). We anticipate that residents of north western Gosnells will benefit from improved public transport access.
- Route 211 would travel a more direct path to Gosnells Station travelling along Corfield St before joining Dorothy St, and would no longer travel along Anaconda Dr or Compton Rd. Residents currently boarding services at these locations would need to either:
- Use routes 231 or 232
- Board along Corfield St on the revised Route 211
- Board along Southern River Rd on the proposed Route 233.
There are no proposed changes to where the current routes 231 and 232 operate.
Change to Route 517
The introduction of Route 233 and increasing residential development in the area requires a change to Route 517 in Southern River. Route 517 is currently operating on a temporary route through Southern River, awaiting completion of the road network east of Park Lake.
It is proposed that Route 517 will operate north of Park Lake (along Castlewood Pkwy, Didcot and Balfour Streets), providing a more convenient option for residents closer to Bletchley Park and Southern Grove Primary Schools. Residents south of Park Lake will be served by the new Route 233 on Southern River Rd.
Deviations to Southern River College would continue to operate, however will do so within the new route.
