Passengers with accessibility requirements are strongly encouraged to use West Leederville station during the work as lifts and escalators will be out of service.
If passengers are unable to use an alternative station and require additional help they can call 1800 800 022 at least one hour before travelling.
From August 15, there will be changes to the way passengers access the station to enable works to begin.
The concourse will be closed, and passengers travelling to Perth will only be able to access the station from the northern entrance, while passengers travelling to Fremantle will need to access the station from the southern entrance. Please follow station access signs.
The SmartRider Add Value Machine will be out of service as part of the concourse closure.
Please see the below map for pedestrian access changes.
Lift replacement will be staggered to always maintain lift access on one platform. Each lift will take approximately three months to replace.
For passengers travelling to Fremantle the lift will be out of service from September 6.
Once this lift is back in service, the lift for passengers travelling to Perth will close, which is expected in early 2024.
Both escalators will be taken out of service in September. Each escalator will take approximately five months to replace. Both escalators are planned to be back in service in early-2024.
Some out of hours works will be required when installing the new escalators to minimise disruptions to passengers.
The new escalators are ‘slow-start’ for better energy efficiency. This means that they slow down when not in use and gently increase to normal operating speed when they detect people near them. They also have an additional lead-in step to provide improved safety.
