The WA government has expanded its level crossing removal program to as many as six crossings on the Armadale line, in addition to the Denny Avenue crossing slated for removal later this year.
The state on September 11 released tenders for teams to investigate the removal of up to six crossings, after preliminary planning identified the potential for a widening of scope for the crossing removal program.
Initially the scope of the first phase of level crossings under the government’s Metronet urban rail renewal initiative was for just three to be removed: Denny Avenue in Kelmscott (where work will begin later this year), Wharf Street in Queens Park, and Oats Street in Carlisle.
However, the state says its own planning process indicated there was real potential for a larger program.
Subsequently, the work will be split into two packages: the first dealing with level crossings at Mint Street, Oats Street and Welshpool Road; the second dealing with Hamilton Street, Wharf Street and William Street.
