TRANSPERTH said they had generally positive feedback throughout the Armadale and Thornlie line closures.

The Armadale and Thornlie lines re-opened on July 10 after nine days of shut for works on the new Perth Stadium Station.

Transperth deployed 164 busses and 219 drivers to help cover the train shut down.

The shutodwn was the longest continuous train service disruption in Transperth’s history.

Transperth spokesman David Hynes said the work at the site was now 50 per cent complete.

“A huge amount of work was carried out both at the Perth Stadium Station site, as well as other works along the line which were scheduled to coincide with the shut to minimise disruption,” Mr Hynes said.

“We went to a lot of effort to ensure this closure coincided with school holidays, and sourced as many replacement buses as we could find.

“Generally speaking, the feedback from our passengers has been positive – and we really appreciate their patience during this time.”
