Perth Train Station is set to shut down for three days this weekend for work on the Perth City Link project.
The station will be closed from 10.30am on Friday to the last service on Sunday night, affecting the Midland, Fremantle and Armadale-Thornlie lines.
All trains will stop from 8pm on Sunday until midnight.
The biggest impacts are expected to be at peak hour on Friday and for people attending the Fremantle v Richmond AFL game on Saturday.
Transport Minister Troy Buswell said the disruption was critical in meeting the mid-2014 completion date for the Perth City Link project and urged public transport users to plan ahead.
"The closure will allow the Fremantle line tracks to be moved - from the Roe Street side of the rail yard to the Wellington Street side - so that work can continue on building the new tunnel; the demolition and rebuild of Platform 9; and construction of a pedestrian underpass to link all Perth Station platforms with Perth Underground," he said.
Mr Buswell said replacement buses were organised and there would be a continuous CAT-style shuttle linking Claisebrook, West Leederville and Perth Station.
The Fremantle line will end at West Leederville, the Midland and Armadale lines will end at Claisebrook Station and the Thornlie line will close with bus replacement from Cannington Station.
The Mandurah and Joondalup lines will not be affected by the station closure until 8pm Sunday when all services stop.
A number of platform changes will be in place when passengers return to Perth Station on Monday.For more information go to www.transperth.wa.gov.au or call 13 62 13.
