Public transport disruptions

Detour options

  • Fremantle Line - Major Impacts to Services - Early 2021

    To build the new turnbacks at Claremont Station, two months of intensive construction activity will take place from 5 February until 5 April 2021 and include:

    • Claremont Station will be closed to the public and no train services will stop there, however, bus services will continue to operate to/from the station.
    • Fremantle Line services between Showgrounds and Fremantle will operate on a 30-minute frequency.
    • Several full line weekend closures, with train replacement bus services being available.

    These disruptions enable essential works to take place to upgrade Claremont Station and install turnback infrastructure and new overhead lines.

    Once complete this will enable an increase in the frequency of Fremantle Line services from Claremont to the CBD during peak times, greater resilience during unplanned service disruptions, and will also allow direct access to the new Airport Line from Claremont Station.

    Passengers who may be impacted by the disruptions are urged to visit the Transperth website, sign up for My Alerts, download the Transperth app or call the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13 for more information.
