Airport, Midland rail lines shutdown extended until April 28
The temporary closure of the Midland and Airport rail lines has been extended until April 28.
The three-day extension means normal train services will now resume on Saturday, April 29.
The closure is to allow work on the new Bayswater Station, which involves demolishing the 130-year-old station, bridge and part of the rail line within a highly-constrained site, realigning the Midland Line and works to facilitate the connection of the new Morley-Ellenbrook Line.
Testing and commissioning of the new rail line and bridge will take place next week before services recommence on Saturday, April 29.
Train replacement bus routes 900, 901 and 902 will continue to operate along the Midland and Airport lines in the interim.
