Pedestrian footbridge removal and stairs-only access from East Parade
From Tuesday 26 September, access to East Perth Station will change.
The old pedestrian footbridge will be removed and access to the platform will be via the new concourse. As the station is still under construction, this concourse is not yet fully accessible. Those requiring ramp access, including people with prams or luggage, please be aware of how the following changes may affect you:
- Stairs-only access available to or from East Parade.
- Ramp access available on the west side of the station (Public Transport Centre side) and to the platform.
- During line closures, passengers travelling to or from the west side of the tracks, will need to use the stairs at the East Parade entrance to access replacement buses. Alternatively, we recommend using Mt Lawley or Claisebrook stations instead.
- Passengers can also access the Transperth network via bus routes 41, 42, 48 and 55 from Lord Street, East Perth.
- Alternative pedestrian access across the train line is at either the Lord Street underpass or Graham Farmer Freeway pathway.
A map of these access changes can be accessed here.
Should you require special assistance at the station, please call our customer service team on 1800 800 022 an hour before you travel. For more information and to plan your journey, visit the Transperth website.

Midland Line Shutdown 21 - 25 September
A four-day Shutdown of the Midland Line is needed in September to complete a large portion of works for the East Perth Station upgrade.
The Shutdown takes place from around 7pm on Thursday 21 September through to last service on Monday 25 September (public holiday) and will impact all stations from East Perth to Midland.

Need more information?
On 20 August, a 52m section of the new platform − at the northern end of the station − opened. There is currently a temporary change to the platform gap causing the train to sit lower than the platform.
- When boarding the train, passengers will need to step down into the train. When leaving the train, passengers will need to step up onto the platform.
- The best position to board the train will be from the temporary platform at the northern end of the station.
- Trains arriving at East Perth Station will stop on the new platform, not at the existing platform. Please follow signage for access to the new platform.
If you require special assistance, please call 1800 800 022 at least one hour before you travel.
Once the new tracks are installed at the end of September, the train will sit level with the platform.
