Perth City Link

Reconnecting the city

Reconnecting Perth

Perth City Link is one of the city’s most exciting redevelopments. The project will reconnect the CBD with Northbridge for the first time in more than 100 years. The area, once just a network of bus and train connections, will become an exciting new destination with housing, shops, restaurants, offices and more.

The train line separating Perth and Northbridge has always allowed easy access to the city, but limited the growth of the CBD to the north. Sinking the rail line and Wellington Street Bus Station will create a 13.5 hectare space with a wealth of exciting new possibilities.

Perth City Link Vision

New potential for bus and train links

As our vision for Perth City Link comes to life, the area will transform into a world-class transit hub.

In 2013, the $360m rail component of the project was completed by the Public Transport Authority, in alliance with John Holland and GHD. This included station upgrades, new links between Perth Station and Perth Underground, and the new Fremantle line rail tunnel.

In 2016, the bus component of the project was completed, with the ageing Wellington Street Bus Station demolished and replaced with a state-of-the-art underground Busport.
