Transport Minister Troy Buswell inspected the site on May 5 and said the 600m Fremantle-line tunnel was complete with below-ground track-laying expected to be completed for use in late July.

Perth City Link Rail Alliance building manager Pat McCarthy said Perth station would eventually have five train lines converging into two lines in the tunnel.

The next part of the project will be to sink Wellington Street Bus Station.

The Public Transport Authority is calling for tenders.
