Those living in Serpentine-Jarrahdale will be able to enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle and connect to the Perth CBD in around 42 minutes.

The project will extend the Armadale Line approximately 8km south to a new Byford Station removing eight level crossings along the way. Armadale Station will be rebuilt as an elevated station easing road congestion, improving safety and connections, and creating new public open space.

The new Byford Station will be built within the existing rail corridor, 400m north of Abernethy Road to make most of development opportunities in the growing town centre and encourage the transformation of underutilised urban land into new precincts.

The existing level crossing at Thomas Road in Byford will be reconfigured to a road-over-rail bridge. Early work on removing the level crossing is underway, marking the start on the Byford Rail Extension. The Thomas Road Bridge Over Rail project is being led by Main Roads Western Australia.

The final project scope will be confirmed when a contract is awarded later this year.


  • Provide greater transport choice and a seamless connection to the Perth CBD and wider metropolitan area
  • Improved safety and accessibility for public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians
  • New, versatile public open spaces underneath and beside the elevated rail
  • Modern stations and improved facilities catering to passengers’ needs and future growth
  • Reduced traffic congestion with the removal of boom gates
