Plan for pageant

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Christmas -

PEO­PLE plan­ning to catch trains or buses to the Christ­mas Pageant this Satur­day night have been warned to bear in mind the big crowds and changes to nor­mal pub­lic trans­port ser­vices.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the pageant was one of the most pop­u­lar com­mu­nity events in Perth.

“Our team works for months to en­sure we are fully pre­pared for the an­nual pageant, and this year is no ex­cep­tion,” he said.

Ex­tra train ser­vices have been put on to help the crowds of up to 150,000 get into and out of the city. Af­ter the pageant, pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling north on the Joon­dalup line will need to use Perth Un­der­ground, and pas­sen­gers head­ing south on the Man­durah line will need to use Es­planade Sta­tion.

“No Man­durah-bound trains will stop at the Un­der­ground, and no Joon­dalup line trains will stop at Es­planade,” Mr Hynes said.

Some bus routes through the city will also change due to road clo­sures.

The Pageant op­er­ates from St Ge­orges Ter­race to Ade­laide Ter­race, com­menc­ing 7.30pm.
