South Eastern Service Changes - Effective 08/05/11

Postby Mr OC Benz » Tue Apr 12, 2011 8:43 pm

Changes to bus services in Armadale, Cockburn Central, Harrisdale, Murdoch and Piara Waters

From Transperth Website

http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/Service ... fault.aspx

Effective: Sunday 8 May 2011

From Sunday 8 May, there will be changes to selected bus services in the south-eastern metropolitan region, improving bus services to Murdoch for passengers residing in Armadale, Harrisdale and Piara Waters.

These changes involve the introduction of the new Route 518 as well as route changes to the existing 519 service. In addition to these changes, the trial Route 529 service will be withdrawn due to low patronage.

How will this affect your journey?

Bus stops

Bus stops on Armadale Rd between Nicholson Rd and Tapper Rd will no longer be in use.

Bus stops on Armadale Rd to the east of Nicholson Rd will continue to be used; however these will now be utilised by Route 519 (travelling between Armadale and Murdoch stations).

New Route 518 (Murdoch – Piara Waters)

From 9 May, new Route 518 will provide services into the newly developing areas of Harrisdale and Piara Waters and provide additional capacity along South St and Ranford Rd during peak periods.

Route 518 will operate Monday to Friday every 15 minutes during peak periods and every 60 minutes during the day on weekdays and on Saturdays.

The new route will be co-ordinated with the existing Route 517 service to upgrade frequency along Ranford Rd.

Amendment to Route 519 (Murdoch – Armadale)

Route 519 will undergo a route change and selected trips will now extend via Nicholson Rd and Armadale Rd to Armadale Station. This route will provide a connection between Armadale Station and Murdoch Station at a similar frequency to the former 529 service.

The amended 519 will no longer travel through sections of Harrisdale which will now be served by new route 518.

The amended 519 will operate Monday to Friday on the following frequency:

* 15 minute peak period service between Murdoch Station and Piara Waters; 30 minute service between Murdoch Station and Armadale Station (similar to former 529 service)
* 60 minute service during the day.

Withdrawal of trial Route 529

From last service on Friday 6 May 2011, trial Route 529 travelling between Armadale and Cockburn Central stations will be withdrawn.

Route 529 commenced on 17 October 2010 on a three month trial basis. The trial was extended for a further three months to ensure Route 529 operated during the busiest time of the year.

Services however, failed to attract sufficient patronage to justify its ongoing provision.

Route 529 will be removed from the South Eastern 8 timetable.

For more information regarding these changes, please call the Transperth InfoLine on 13 62 13 (TTY: 9428 1999, TIS: 13 14 50).

It'll probably be a mixture of Southern River and Canning Vale as not only are there are other services in Murdoch which can be operated by Swan...

It has been done before but only from the timed stop in Victoria Park by Canningvale, all other times by SOuthern River. Like i say id love to see Canningvale use at least 2 NH's on the 519 extension to Armadale then maybe some local runs in that area i.e. Armadale Circular and Kelmscott ones etc and then either a 220 or 519 return which then gives CV more runs (other routes they do) if they do a return to Murdoch, plus the 519 is not accessible so it will be interesting if CV chuck at least 2 0405NH on it but thats very unlikely. Maybe that would the case when CV get new Volvos and 1510-1517 back.

From 2000 to approximately 2001/2002 there were NHs doing 220s. IIRC, I think Gosnells/Southern River had them early enough to do 219s. I remember when they were first delivered, many a Swan driver would be finding it hard to get an NH out of 'Park' while in the layover; massive PITA for a passenger waiting at the stand.

Cheers!
