THE Armadale and Thornlie train lines will be shut from July 1-9 for works on the Perth Stadium Station.

Residents who take those routes are urged to plan for the disruption, which is set to affect five business days.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said there would be train replacement buses .

“Passengers who will be using the replacement buses should allow more time to complete their journey or, if possible, consider other options such as staggering their work hours, car-pooling or riding a bike to their destination,” he said.

“We understand that nobody likes disruption, but these works are critical to delivering public transport for the new Perth Stadium.”

Mr Hynes said the train lines being shut had been carefully timed to avoid any AFL matches, and take place in school and university holidays, when traditionally fewer passengers used the Transperth network.

On Friday July 1, the last full service on the Armadale Line will depart Perth for Armadale at 6.47pm and Thornlie from Perth at 7.07pm.

There will be a half-line service to Cannington that departs Perth at 7.02pm.

Heading to Perth, the last services will depart Armadale at 7.16pm and Thornlie at 7.35pm.

Trains will resume from first service on Sunday July 10, in time for the West Coast and North Melbourne game.
