TBM Grace has been halted in a holding pattern underneath Perth airport land due to “ground disturbances” until the processes related to tunnelling can be independently reviewed and validated

Update TBM Grace has resumed tunnelling, TBM Sandy will be restarted once the distance between the two is acceptable and of safe tunnelling practice

Claremont station will be upgraded to support six carriage trains

Apart of the upgrade includes two sets of crossovers and a siding for Forrestfield services to terminate which will be built between Claremont & Swanbourne stations with an improved 5 minute frequency between Bayswater & Claremont stations ultimately spurring the end of the peak patterns on the Fremantle- Midland lines

Claremont Station upgrade to support METRONET frequency boost

Sunday, 29 April 2018

Train frequency between Claremont and Bayswater to increase by 2021
Claremont Station to be upgraded to include new turnbacks and accessibility improvements
Tender for engineering and design services for the Claremont upgrade now released
The McGowan Government will boost the frequency of train services on the Fremantle and Midland lines by 2021 as part of its METRONET expansion.

Passengers at stations between Claremont and Bayswater will have a train every five minutes during peak periods, once track and station upgrades are completed in coming years.

A tender released today calls for engineering and design services for the upgrade of the train station, two additional turnbacks, and platform extension and track realignment works at Claremont.

The track works will be undertaken to enable trains travelling from the Forrestfield-Airport Link to turn around just west of Claremont Station.

These upgrades mean Fremantle Line passengers connecting at Claremont Station and the city will have a direct link through to the Forrestfield-Airport Link, including Airport Central Station.

In addition to the station and track upgrades, the State Government's land development agency, LandCorp, has been maximising opportunities for residential and commercial development within the Claremont Station precinct.

The Claremont Station tender announcement follows the start of community consultation for the METRONET upgrade of Bayswater Station, which will enhance the Bayswater town centre and increase public open space.

Initiatives to create METRONET-style precincts are also being planned at other stations between Claremont and Bayswater, such as Meltham, West Leederville, Shenton Park and City West.

The project is funded from within the existing Forrestfield-Airport Link budget and was accounted for in the 2016-17 State Budget. It is anticipated that all rail works will be delivered by late 2020.

Comments attributed to Transport Minister Rita Saffioti:

"This is an exciting project that will benefit passengers on the Midland and Fremantle train lines, including the students attending the new Inner City College and the future developments around the Subiaco Oval site.

"It will ensure the best movement of trains once the Forrestfield-Airport Link is complete, and provide an additional place for drivers to turn trains outside the CBD without having to reach the end of the line.

"This is another recognition that Claremont is becoming a growing centre, with several developments close to public transport springing up right around the station precinct.

"The Claremont Station upgrade will allow the station to accommodate six-car trains and will help passengers with mobility issues to better access public transport
