The Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal project aims to improve public transport safety while reducing traffic congestion as part of Perth's first major elevated rail project.

Five level crossings will be removed along the Armadale Line by raising rail over road at Mint Street, Oats Street, Welshpool Road, Hamilton Street and Wharf Street.

New stations will be built at Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park and Cannington while Welshpool Station will be closed.

The William Street level crossing and a new elevated Beckenham Station is being considered as a priced option.


  • Increased safety for people and vehicles travelling in the area
  • Improved traffic flow through the area
  • Modern station facilities
  • Revitalisation of local community with improved land use planning
  • Reduce time spent sitting at boom gates by up to six hours per day
