Future Byford Station site revealed
Electric trains are coming to Byford with the preferred station location now confirmed.
The new ground-level Byford Station will be built within the existing rail corridor, around 8kms south of Armadale Station, south of Evans Way and 400 metres north of Abernethy Road.
The Byford Rail Extension will improve access to the area and give more transport options for residents with a 42min train ride to the Perth CBD and improved bus connections.
The future Byford Station will include up to 600 parking bays, a new bus interchange and pedestrian crossing over the railway line will be built. The project will also see a new Australind platform and upgraded pedestrian overpass at Armadale Station.
In addition to taking cars off the road, the project will further help improve traffic flow by reconfiguring the Thomas Road level crossing into a road-over-rail bridge.
Options are still being considered for the other five existing vehicle level crossings and pedestrian crossing at Seventh Road. Potential solutions include road-over-rail, rail over existing roads or crossing closure.
