Construction has commenced on the first elevated train station as part of METRONET Armadale Line upgrades in Perth, Western Australia (WA). 

Carlisle is the first of seven new stations to begin work. New stations will also be built at Armadale, Beckenham, Byford, Cannington, Oats Street, and Queens Park.

More than 150m of elevated rail has already been constructed, paving the way for the start of works at the Carlisle station.  

The new station will feature two ground-level entrances, stairs, 57 parking bays, and bike storage facilities.  

Additionally, it will offer new public open spaces beneath the station, including a playground, fitness park, nature play areas, and shared paths. 

WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said: “Works on the elevated structure will continue to progress in the coming weeks and months – with the focus being on the sites of our new train stations, which will allow construction of those new stations to commence.

“Within the next few months, construction will be underway on all seven new stations on the Armadale Line, marking the peak construction phase for the project.” 

The upgrades include 5.5km of elevated rail and the creation of 6ha of public open space while 13 level crossings have been removed to date. 

The METRONET Armadale Line upgrades consist of the Victoria Park Level Crossing Removal project and the Byford Rail Extension project.  

These projects are being jointly funded by the Australian and WA Governments under the leadership of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Premier Mark McGowan, respectively.

The Armadale Line will be extended by approximately 8km south to a new ground-level station in Byford.  

Last September, the WA government announced that the METRONET Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal project achieved a milestone. 

The METRONET programme, which encompasses these projects, has seen an investment of A$4.18bn ($2.74bn) from the Australian Government.
