Mid­land train line to close for four days

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

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 con­struc­tion of the $25 mil­lion East Perth Sta­tion Up­grade project, which is due to open in 2018.

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

“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.”

More train re­place­ment buses would cater for pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling to the show.

All other train lines will op­er­ate as usual, with ex­tra show ser­vices stop­ping at Show­grounds Sta­tion. For de­tails, visit the Transperth web­site or call the Transperth Info Line on 13 62 13.
