Western Australia’s new $1.32billion, 72km Perth-to-Mandurah Railway service has officially begun today.
Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan has announced that the start of rail services between Perth and Mandurah had been scheduled for December 23, 2007.
The first test train on the new Mandurah line will be running between Perth and Rockingham this morning.
WA’s urban public transport system has taken another step forward as train station parking fees become payable with SmartRider.
The introduction of this year’s summer time will have no effect on Transperth services or timetables.
