Escalator Replacement Project

You may have noticed works are taking place at Perth Underground Station. These works are part of our Escalator Replacement Program, which involves replacing escalators, installing new lifts and amending existing staircase layouts.

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

Perth Underground - Updated December 2018

The following have now reopened:

  • The escalator that runs between the centre of the platform and the concourse
  • The escalators and stairs under the Perth Underground InfoCentre between the Murray St entrance and the concourse.

The temporary staircase has also been removed.

In January 2019 the final escalator works will commence at Perth Underground. The escalators and stairs located closest to William St between the Murray St entrance and the concourse will be closed to facilitate their replacement.

These works are expected to be completed in mid-2019.

For more information and regular updates on the project head to the PTA website.
