Expect a little bit of disruption next weekend folks. Because of the East Perth Station upgrade (as part of the how future crowds from the new stadium will be managed) the Midland Line has to close for the long weekend 22 – 25 Sept (incl).
This will impact those on the roads as well as those who normally take the train as the number of vehicles on the road will increase. It’s unfortunate in that it is the first week of the school hols and the opening of the Perth Royal Show. Replacement buses will operate throughout the Shutdown and will be increased to cater for Royal Show passengers.
The Shutdown will take place from around 7pm on Thursday 21 September through to the last service on Monday 25 September (public holiday).
There is plenty of information on the Transperth website, including a Shutdown passenger brochure and accessible brochure, plus an information video and a Shutdown Facebook page which will be monitored and updated daily with tips for travelling during the Shutdown.
