Ride on Transperth for a high-voltage Highway to Hell event
Transperth can prevent patrons being thunderstruck by road closures during Perth Festival’s Bon Scott tribute event, Highway to Hell, next month.
Hell ain’t a bad place to be on March 1 with the event separated into four entertainment zones, but patrons are encouraged to visit the Transperth website to plan their journey and ensure they arrive at the correct station.
Transperth spokesman David Hynes urged passengers to allow extra travel time as services will be busy.
“We are used to having big numbers of people going through our system, but not at this location,” he said.
“This isn’t going to be the same as catching public transport to an event serviced by Perth Station and Stadium Station - which are designed to handle large quantities of people in short periods of time. Fremantle, Canning Bridge and Bull Creek stations are much smaller.
“We ask patrons attending Highway to Hell to be patient and follow all instructions from Transperth staff to ensure they have a fun, safe event.”
Families using public transport can take advantage of Transperth’s discounted FamilyRider ticket, which allows up to seven people (two standard fares and five concession fares) to travel anywhere on the network for $13.10.
A number of road closures will be in place during the event, including Canning Highway between Applecross and Fremantle from 1pm, causing significant disruptions to a number of timetabled services. For more information visit the service disruptions webpage.
