When the Byford Rail Extension is completed, residents in and around Byford will be able to travel by train to the Perth CBD and wider metropolitan area.

The design phase is now underway with a preferred option selected to extend the electrified rail network within the existing rail corridor around 8kms from Armadale Station, into a newly built Byford Station, approximately 400m north of Abernethy Road.

In addition to taking cars off the road, the project will further help improve traffic flow by reconfiguring the Thomas Road level crossing to a road-over-rail bridge. Options are still being considered for

When the Byford Rail Extension is completed, residents in and around Byford will be able to travel by train to the Perth CBD and wider metropolitan area.

The design phase is now underway with a preferred option selected to extend the electrified rail network within the existing rail corridor around 8kms from Armadale Station, into a newly built Byford Station, approximately 400m north of Abernethy Road.

In addition to taking cars off the road, the project will further help improve traffic flow by reconfiguring the Thomas Road level crossing to a road-over-rail bridge. Options are still being considered for the other existing level crossings.

Since the 1890’s, Byford has been a farming community at the south-eastern edge of Perth. Over the past 120 years, the town has evolved to a large residential and mixed-use precinct.

The Byford Rail Extension will provide improved access to the area and more transport options for those working and living in the area.

The Thomas Road over Rail project is being led by Main Roads Western Australia. You can find out more via their project page.

    The design phase is now underway with a preferred option selected to extend the electrified rail network within the existing rail corridor around 8 kilometres from Armadale Station, into a newly built Byford Station, approximately 400 metres north of Abernethy Road, Byford.

    To improve safety and connections in the area, and improve traffic flow, Thomas Road level crossing will also be reconfigured to a road-over-rail bridge. Options are still being considered for the other existing level crossings.

    As the project moves into the concept design phase, residents, workers and land owners in Armadale and Byford areas are invited to share their thoughts on key elements of the design.

    Business owners in the Byford area are invited to also complete the Byford Local Business Survey
