Roads, parking, pathways and beach access have temporarily changed at Scarborough while the beachfront is being refreshed. You can still visit and enjoy the beach, amphitheatre, parks and the local businesses as normal and we suggest you use Manning Street and Brighton Road as entry points to the area.
The main vehicle entry to Scarborough Beach via Scarborough Beach Road is temporarily closed to vehicle traffic and The Esplanade is one-way whilst we create a new bus interchange. Watch the video for details.
Bus 990 connects with trains at Glendalough Station on the Joondalup Line. Head down the escalators at the station to find the 990 bus stop located on Scarborough Beach Road.
Once you reach the terminus in Scarborough you can get to the beach (5 minutes) and local business including bars, restaurants and cafes by heading left or right.
Bus stops are located on West Coast Highway (by Rendezvous Hotel, drop off only) and The Esplanade (north of Scarborough Beach Road, pick up and drop off).

Some pathways are currently diverted around the construction area, along The Esplanade and away from the coastline with beach access only from Scarborough Beach Road, Reserve Street and Brighton Road ends.
