  • East Perth railway station

    East Perth railway station is located on the Midland line in Perth, Western Australia. It is operated by Transperth serving the suburb of East Perth. It is adjacent to the East Perth Terminal and Public Transport Centre.

    History

    The site occupied by East Perth station, East Perth Terminal and the Public Transport Centre was formerly the East Perth Locomotive Depot.[1]

    The station took the name of the previous East Perth station, which was renamed Claisebrook.[2] The former East Perth railway station was removed on the change of the railway system in the late 1960s.

    The original East Perth railway station opened in 1883, and in the early 20th century was found the name East Perth Junction (the junction being the line that proceeded to Armadale joined the Eastern Railway close to the station. It was renamed Claisebrook in 1969.[3]

    As part of the Perth Stadium transport works, the station was upgraded over a two-year period from 2016 to 2018.[4] Due to the large numbers expected to utilise the station on event days,[5] an upgrade was required to ensure that the station could handle the large crowds, as well as to make it fully accessible. Works included lengthening platforms and associated shelters to handle four to six car trains, upgrading and expanding lifts, staircases and walkways, and expanding car and bike parking spaces. In addition, platforms were resurfaced, tactile markings were added and four new lifts were installed to make the station fully compliant with disability access standards. As of March 2018, only minor works are left to be completed.
