If you rely on public transport to get to one of our hospitals or community sites, it is important you plan your trip ahead of the Mandurah trainline shutdown, which begins from the first service on Sunday 26 December until the last service on Friday 14 January 2022.

During this period trains will be cancelled between Elizabeth Quay and Aubin Grove stations, with only train replacement bus services running. This shutdown is to enable essential works to be carried out as part of METRONET’s Thornlie-Cockburn Link project (external link).

Trains will continue to run between Aubin Grove and Mandurah stations, but this will be a reduced service during peak periods, at 15-minute frequency.

For any patients, visitors and staff attending Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH), Transperth has made the following arrangements:

  • All replacement bus services will travel via the FSH precinct, picking up at bus stops on Barry Marshall Parade.
  • If travelling north, an express replacement bus service will go direct from bus stops on Barry Marshall Parade to the temporary bus station at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC). Route 929 will operate from first service until after the evening shift change.
  • If travelling south, train replacement buses will operate between bus stops on Barry Marshall Parade and Aubin Grove station. This is an all stop service, Route 909, and will operate from first to last service. After the PM peak, this service will extend to the PCEC.

For more information and to help in planning ahead, visit Transperth website (external link) to learn more or access resources relating to this shutdown, including FSH specific information (external link).

For those traveling by car, there will be some changes along the Kwinana Freeway southbound between Berrigan Drive and Armadale Road during the shutdown. It is anticipated that the Kwinana Freeway may be busier than usual, so we recommend allowing additional travel time.

Please plan ahead as this may impact the availability of on-site parking at our hospitals.
