The $360 million rail project, scheduled for completion in 2014, is the first stage of the Perth City Link. The scope of works includes:

  • Sinking the Fremantle Line between William Street and Lake/King Street. This will create almost 600m of a new covered section of the Fremantle Line.
  • Upgrading Perth Station with new tiling, lighting and services and convert the current Platform 9 into an island Platform 8/9.
  • Creating a new tunnel under the northern end of the Barrack Street Bridge to service the new Platform 9.
  • Extending the existing Joondalup line tunnel roof from Lake to Milligan Streets to be in line with the new Fremantle Line tunnel.
  • Creating a new pedestrian underpass connecting Perth Underground Station to all the platforms at Perth Station.
