Midland train line to close for four days
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.
