PEDESTRIAN railway crossings in Mosman Park and Cottesloe will be upgraded in an $18 million State Government project starting this month.

“Anything that makes our network safer and more accessible for Transperth passengers and local residents is a great thing,” Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said, announcing the project this morning.

Improvements at the Mosman Park train station and Salvado Street, Cottesloe crossings will be some of the first 22 of 90 upgrades on the Fremantle, Armadale and Midland train lines.

The work will make the crossings comply with the Disability Discrimination Act, and include new lights, paths manoeuvring, passing areas and tactile paving.

The first batch will be completed by late 2019, with the remainder to be done by 2022.
