    To build the new turnbacks at Claremont Station, eight weeks of intensive construction activity will take place from 5 February until 5 April 2021.

    This will see major service impacts to the Fremantle Line during this work, including:

    • No trains stopping at Claremont Station, with bus services only operating
    • Three full line weekend closures, with train replacement bus services being available.
    • Fremantle Line services between Showgrounds and Fremantle stations reduced to a 30-minute frequency with passengers required to change trains at Cottesloe Station (some passengers may also need to change at Showgrounds)

    You can find detailed passenger service information available on the Transperth website. Visit the Transperth website or download the Transperth app to sign up for My Alerts to stay informed on the upcoming disruptions.

    These new turnbacks are an important part of the Claremont Station Project. Once completed they will allow more trains to run between Claremont Station and the CBD during peak times and provide direct access to the new Airport Line from Claremont Station. Claremont Station is also being refurbished during this period.

    For more information about the project call 9326 3666 during business hours, or email info@metronet.wa.gov.au

    In response to public statutory consultation in April 2018 and the Ordinary Council meeting held 24 September 2019, Council resolved for the CEO to put forward a Scheme Proposal to the Office of the Attorney General to vary the Bruce Trust Indenture.

    The Scheme for variation of Trust under the Charitable Trusts Act 1962 (WA) was approved by the Hon Attorney General and the Scheme published in Government Gazette number 70 on 8 May 2020 at page 1168.
    Please see document library for your reference.

    The Scheme Variation corrects an anomaly between the Trust land and the existing road along The Esplanade by recognising the road, allowing vehicles to park on the edge of the road and allows for the application of the City of Nedlands Parking and Parking Facilities Local Law 2013 on the road that is situated on part of the Bruce Trust Land. The Scheme Variation does not allow the road to be widened.
