Kate Violante / Monday, February 21, 2022 / Categories: News < Back to all disruptions Australind Major Disruption To enable works on METRONET's Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal, Byford Rail Extension and Thornlie-Cockburn Link projects, the Armadale/Thornlie Line will close for up to 18 months commencing in early-2023. Works include extending the train line out to Byford, connecting the Thornlie-Cockburn Link at Thornlie Station, and elevating the rail throughout Victoria Park and Cannington. The shutdown will also impact the Australind train service. Extensive consultation will be undertaken with passengers, including a survey, to ensure adequate replacement services. We anticipate more details will be available towards the end of 2022. In the meantime, for more information on the project visit Building for Tomorrow.
