Demo starts on Wellington bus station
The bus station was a prominent part of the Wellington Street landscape for 40 years. Now it makes way for the Perth City Link .

Demolition work has begun on Wellington Street Bus Station, which will make way for the next stage of the Perth City Link project.

Work has begun on the second stage of the Perth City Link project.

Excavators started bringing down the 40-year-old depot this week as a prelude to the building of a state-of-the-art underground busport.

In an Australian first the busport will feature dynamic stand allocation technology, similar to an airport departure gate system.

The Perth Busport project is due for completion in mid-2016 and is being funded by the State Government ($237 million) and the City of Perth ($12 million).

Wellington Street Bus Station was opened in March 1973 by then Premier John Tonkin and it was originally known as the Perth Central Bus Station.
