Residents in Byford and the wider Serpentine-Jarrahdale area will connect to the Perth CBD on a seamless 42-minute train journey once the Byford Rail Extension is complete.

The Armadale Line will be extended approximately 8km south to a new ground-level station in Byford, supporting one of the fastest growing areas in Australia.

Armadale Station will be rebuilt as an elevated station with three nearby busy level crossings removed and replaced with elevated rail.

Other level crossings between Armadale and Byford will also be removed with alternative treatments to improve traffic flow and ease road congestion.

The first level crossing, Thomas Road, has been removed and reconfigured to a road-over-rail bridge. The first stage of the bridge opened to traffic in November 2022. 

The project will kick-start development opportunities in the Armadale and Byford town centres, providing new and safe connections around the stations.


  • 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
