Last train to Belmont Park station
Next weekend will mark the end of an era with the closure of Belmont Park station to make way for its modern replacement.
The station will close following the last service on October 13, at the end of the winter racing season.
Public Transport Authority spokesman David Hynes said the station must close to allow work to start on the station which will service the new Perth Stadium.
“Belmont Park Station is a special events station that operates only on race days and for other special events,” he said.
“We need to close the station entirely so we can start to build the new station on the same footprint.”
The station will close after the last service on Sunday October 13.
“The new Stadium Station will feature six platforms and will be able to move 28,000 people by train within one hour of the completion of an event.
“It will be operational when the new Perth Stadium opens in 2018.”
The closure will not affect train services on the Armadale/Thornlie line.
Mr Hynes said passengers should check the Transperth website or contact the InfoLine (13 62 13) for more information.
