The Armadale Line will be extended 8 kilometres south of Armdale Station to Byford.

The street-level Byford Station will be built adjacent to the emerging Byford Town Centre and will have up to 600 parking bays, a bus interchange and pedestrian crossing over the railway line.

Armadale Station will also be expanded with longer platforms for six-car trains, a new Australind platform and an extended pedestrian overpass. The bus interchange will be redeveloped into a modern facility with better access to the station.

The existing level crossing at Thomas Road in Byford will also be reconfigured to a road-over-rail bridge.

Early work on removing the level crossing is underway as part of Main Roads WA's Thomas Road Over Bridge Rail Project, marking the start on the Byford Rail Extension.
