Mid­land line shut­down

Ellenbrook Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

MID­LAND rail pas­sen­gers are urged to plan ahead for a four­day shut­down of the line.

Buses will re­place train ser­vices from the evening of Septem­ber 21 to the start of ser­vices on Septem­ber 26.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the dis­rup­tion would en­able work on the $25 mil­lion East Perth sta­tion up­grade to be­gin.

He said the ma­jor works could not be com­pleted without a full-line shut­down and power switch off.

“The clo­sure has been sched­uled to min­imise dis­rup­tion to pas­sen­gers and will run over the Queen’s Birth­day public hol­i­day weekend, so that weekday peak-hour com­muters are min­i­mally af­fected,” he said.

“While this line clo­sure will oc­cur dur­ing the first three days of the Perth Royal Show, only the Mid­land line will be im­pacted.”

Mr Hynes said more re­place­ment buses would cater for show pas­sen­gers.
