PERTH train station will be closed for the weekend from 8pm Friday, February 8, because of service changes to the Armadale, Midland and Fremantle lines.
Trains on the Armadale and Midland lines will operate from Claisebrook station, with replacement buses operating between Perth and Claisebrook and the Fremantle line trains will operate from Perth underground station.
The Joondalup and Mandurah lines will continue services as normal out of Perth underground station.
Public Transport Authority spokesman David Hynes said the rail disruptions would enable work to continue on extending the eastern concourse to connect to the new platform on the Roe Street side of Perth station.
“The PCLRA (Perth City Link Rail Alliance) team will work throughout the weekend to install beams and pour concrete for a new landing in preparation for two new escalators, a staircase and lift,” he said.
“Our passengers will see a noticeable difference on the Monday morning.
“We are also doing some other rail works at the same time to form part of the support structure for the new refurbished lines.
“This work will be happening east of the Barrack Street Bridge.”
He said the eastern concourse would remain open during the weekend for pedestrians travelling between the city and Northbridge.
People catching trains into the city and to Laneway Festival on the Saturday should check the Transperth website for services.
