Good news for Fremantle PT commuters with upgrades to power substations powering the newtwork.

Until now, one main substation at East Perth has provided power to the Midland, Armadale/Thornlie and Fremantle lines. The new substation will mean the Fremantle Line has its own source of power to run trains between Fremantle and City West Station if there is an unexpected interruption in the city.

The substation and crossover installations, part of a $23.8 million upgrade.

    Thanks for publishing this. A massive amount of money goes in to public transport, and ours is very good, but people just don’t realise how much just the existing network costs, they just want to see a shiny new line!
