Midland Line closure

Buses will replace trains on the Midland Line from the evening of Friday 8 December until Sunday 10 December. All stations from Midland to Claisebrook will be impacted and passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra travel time. During the closure, train replacement buses will operate. The pedestrian overpass at East Perth Station will remain open during the closure.

All work will follow an approved Noise Management Plan, however some noise and disturbance is unavoidable. A minimum of two noise monitors will be set up within the construction area to monitor noise levels. We apologise for these disruptions and any inconvenience they may cause.

Standard construction hours are 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday. During out-of-hours works, if you feel there is excessive noise please contact the Site Supervisor directly on 0428 358 569. This allows them to immediately review the source of the noise and if possible, put mitigation measures in place.
