Escalator Maintenance Works

Joondalup Line and Perth Station Escalators
Updated - Thursday 1 Ocotber 2020 

Works are continuing on escalators on the Joondalup Line and at Perth Station.

These works are being undertaken to maintain and bring back into service a number of escalators along the Joondalup Line that were experiencing some issues.

Some of these escalators have been unavailable for a significant amount of time due to the need to replace a critical part, which is now possible. We have come to an agreement with the manufacturer to perform essential maintenance and repair works to rectify these ongoing issues.

Works are continuing as follows:

Whitfords Station

  • One escalator will undergo works from Wednesday 2 September until early 2021.

Perth Station

  • The escalator travelling up from Platform 7 to the Eastern Concourse will continue to undergo works until early November
  • The escalator travelling up from Platform 5 to the Eastern Concourse will continue to undergo works until early November
  • Once work on these escalators are complete works will commence on the down escalators on each platform.

Future Works

This project will continue on escalators at these stations:

  • Warwick
  • Glendalough.

Each station will have one escalator unavailable at a time, with these works expected to take at least three months per escalator to complete. This page will be updated with further detail as works progress so check back regularly.

These works are expected to be complete mid-2021.
