Perth Stadium Transport Infrastructure Testing – Saturday 21 October – 3pm to 11pm

On Saturday 21 October, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) will be testing the new rail infrastructure by running a special event train service for a simulated Perth Stadium event.

The trains will run from approximately 3pm and will move into the various stow tracks at Burswood and Victoria Park to simulate a pre-event service. From approximately 8.30pm, they will simulate a post-event service and will move from the stow roads to Perth Stadium Station and then onto Perth and Armadale.  This service will be an operational test only with no passengers involved.

Part of the test will include closing Moore Street level crossing due to the increased volume of trains passing through the crossing. A road closure will be in place at Moore Street level crossing during the test. East of the level crossing, access to Royal Perth Hospital and its multi-story car park will be maintained.  West of the level crossing Pier Street will be closed just south of James Street. Traffic management and detours will be in place during the closure.

Pedestrians will also be unable to use the Moore Street level crossing during the closure. The nearest alternative pedestrian access across the rail is east via the McIver Station underpass, or west at Barrack Street.

Please see below a map of the temporary closures.
