Perth City Link rail project

The $360 million rail project is the first stage of the Perth City Link and was completed at the end of 2013.

Undertaken by the Public Transport Authority, the project included:

  • Sinking the Fremantle Line between William Street and Lake/King Street, creating almost 600m of a new covered section of the Fremantle Line.
  • Upgrading Perth Station with new tiling, lighting and services and converting the current Platform 9
  • Creating a new tunnel under the northern end of the Barrack Street Bridge to service the new Platform 9
  • Extending the existing Joondalup line tunnel roof from Lake to Milligan Streets to be in line with the new Fremantle Line tunnel
  • Creating a new pedestrian underpass connecting Perth Underground Station to all the platforms at Perth Station.
