East Perth Station upgrade

Work is underway to upgrade East Perth Station, as part of the Perth Stadium Transport Infrastructure project and the PTA's program of Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) upgrades. The upgrade of the station will provide the operational requirements and infrastructure needed to cater for the increased level of patronage at the train station on Perth Stadium event days, as well as making the station DDA compliant.

The upgrade will include:

  • Increasing in the length of the platforms to accommodate four and six car trains
  • Increasing platform shelter
  • Replacing the existing pedestrian bridge with a new wider and fully-covered DDA compliant bridge north of its current location
  • Increasing access to the concourse via stairs and lifts
  • DDA upgrades including resurfacing of the platform, new tactile marking and the installation of four lifts (one at the East Parade side of the station, two that connect to the platform and one at West Parade side)
  • Installing a rail cross-over which will provide operational resilience to the Transperth network by providing the ability for new train movements on the Midland Line during disruptions
  • Reconfiguring the Public Transport Centre’s West Parade car park to enable the installation of the new lifts and stairs and bike facilities.

The upgrade of East Perth Station is expected to be complete in late-2017, in time for the Stadium opening in early 2018.

East Perth Station Upgrade: Pedestrian footbridge closure and out-of-hours work from 30 June to 30 July 2017

23 June 2017

To allow the East Perth Station’s new concourse to be safely craned into position, the pedestrian footbridge crossing the tracks at East Perth Station will close from 8.30pm on Friday 30 June through to 6am on Sunday 2 July 2017.

As part of these works, the Midland Line will be closed and train replacement buses will operate from East Parade.  As such, passengers travelling to or from the west side of the tracks at East Perth Station (where the Public Transport Centre is located), are strongly encouraged to avoid East Perth and use either Claisebrook or Mt Lawley stations.  Alternatively, local passengers can also access Transperth services via Routes 41, 42, 48 and 55 from Lord Street, East Perth.

Local community members who wish to cross the tracks can do so at either the Lord Street underpass or the Graham Farmer Freeway pathway.

For passenger information and to plan your journey, please visit transperth.wa.gov.au.  If you are a passenger with mobility issues or a vision impairment and you would like assistance at a train station, please contact the customer service team on 1800 800 22 at least one hour before you intend to travel.

Please be advised that as of the afternoon of Friday 17 March, pedestrian access between East Perth Station and the Public Transport Centre (and Indian Pacific platform) will revert back to the previous alignment.

The diversion through the car park will be removed and pedestrians heading to East Perth Station from the PTC building can use the Indian Pacific platform to access the footbridge.  Similarly, pedestrians leaving East Perth Station can turn right at the bottom of the footbridge to access the Indian Pacific platform and PTC building. 

There will still be construction and construction noise in the area, however this will be safely fenced off.  Should you require assistance at this station please contact Transperth Customer Assistance on 1800 800 022 at least an hour before you plan to travel.
