Major overhaul for Cannington and Queens Park stations

Cannington and Queens Park stations.

Cannington and Queens Park stations, Western Australia, are reaching new heights with a major overhaul as part of the METRONET Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal Project.

The Victoria Park-Canning level crossing removal is Perth’s first major elevated rail. It has been designed to improve public transport safety, create new and versatile public space for the community and reduce traffic congestion.

Overall, six level crossings will be removed along the Armadale Line and new modern elevated stations will be built at Carlisle, Oats Street, Queens Park, Cannington and Beckenham stations.
