Belmont Community Zone

Works update

In 2016 PTA completed forward works along Central Avenue in preparation for the increase in bus and traffic movements around the new Belmont Station precinct. A number of services, including overhead power cables and the Southern Main Drain, were relocated as part of the works and on November 24 the newly formed Central Avenue was opened. Central Avenue now connects to Dunreath Drive and features a 6m wide landscaped median, street lighting, pedestrian crossings, cycle lanes and parking spaces. More than 1400 tree and plant species were planted along the verges and median to complete the new design. To find out more, view the forward works fact sheet.

With the forward works complete, Brearley Avenue was permanently closed on 17 January 2017 between First Street and Dunreath Drive to make way for construction of the new Belmont Station. 

The Belmont construction site will be handed over to SI-NRW in February 2017. Early works in the Belmont Community Zone will involve site establishment and some construction works, including:

  • boundary fencing, signage and security
  • utility relocations
  • minor clearing of vegetation and topsoil removal
  • installation of temporary buildings, site amenities, parking
  • construction of pads for buildings, plant and equipment areas
  • installation of required plant and equipment.

Belmont Station

Belmont Station will be an underground station similar to Elizabeth Quay Station. The railway in this location will be fully underground, running inside the tunnel.

The station will benefit the community and surrounding catchment area by providing a bus/train interchange and car park with 500 – 1,000 bays, and allow for a 15–minute journey to the Perth CBD by rail. The station will also service future business and residential developments.

The project team is working closely with local government to ensure the new station compliments their vision for the future of the local area. For more information about local planning visit the City of Belmont's website

Belmont Station Community Group

Engagement with local businesses and residents remains a focus for the project team. To help ensure we remain aware of local issues, the project team has established community advisory groups for each of the project's community zones.

At these meetings, Belmont Station Community Group members are presented with design information and details of project progress, and asked to provide feedback, guidance and local knowledge during site establishment and early construction works; this is inclusive of the egress shaft construction works near the First St/Brearley Ave intersection.
