Once again Transperth is inconveniencing 1000s of tourists and locals on the long weekend. (I'm pretty sure they did the same thing last year.)
Note to visitors: there may not be access for prams and wheelchairs as Transperth usually use very old articulated buses because they carry more people. Bikes and surfboards are not permitted. You can ring 13 62 13 to check.
From the West Australian today:
The Fremantle line will be closed from 8pm Thursday to Tuesday, with replacement buses to run the length of the line for the four-day weekend.
The Perth Underground Station will also be closed for the long weekend. Mandurah line trains would start from and finish at Esplanade Station instead of the underground.
People trying to get into the city will have to use a bus replacement service, which will run through Leederville, according to Transperth.
The Joondalup line will operate as normal from Leederville to Clarkson with rail replacement buses between Leederville and Perth.
The Armadale line will operate all stops, with replacement bus services between Thornlie and Cannington station. The Armadale line will operate on an alternative timetable and will operate on the Midland line platforms at Perth and McIver stations.
Good news for people using the Midland line over the weekend – it won't be affected.
