Yarloop Station platform upgrade
Work has begun at Yarloop Station to upgrade the existing low-level platform to a raised platform fully compliant with Disability and Discrimination Act (DDA) Standards.
The station will be closed to the public during construction, reopening mid-2018. Yarloop Station passengers will need to use Cookernup or Waroona Stations during installation of the new raised platform.
The six-metre-long platform will be fully sheltered, accessible via ramp or stairs, and have seating for three people. Lighting will also be installed to meet DDA requirements. The platform will be constructed using a steel structural frame which will be fabricated off-site.
The new raised platform will improve the experience of Transwa passengers travelling to or from Yarloop on the Australind service, which operates twice daily between Bunbury and Perth.
