Kwinana Station is a railway station located on the suburban boundary of Bertram and Parmelia, Western Australia. Situated near Thomas Road and Sicklemore Road, it services a rapidly developing suburban area. It is served by the interburban Mandurah line, with services to both the Perth CBD and the neighbouring city of Mandurah.

Service[edit]

Kwinana is on the Mandurah Line of the Transperth Trains network, a hybrid metro-commuter rail system with five lines in metropolitan Perth. As such, it receives trains northbound to central Perth and southbound to the suburbs of Mandurah and Rockingham. Three stopping patterns serve Kwinana station: all stations, C, and K (only towards Perth).[1]

In the inbound direction, all stations and K-pattern take about 31 minutes, averaging 63.1 km/h (39.2 mph), to arrive at Perth.[1] C-pattern trains stop at all stations except Canning Bridge heading to Perth, taking 26 minutes at an average of 75.9 km/h (47.2 mph).[1]

In the outbound direction, an all stations train takes about 25 minutes, averaging 89.3 km/h (55.5 mph), to arrive at Mandurah.[1] C-pattern trains operate locally to Mandurah apart from skipping Canning Bridge; this has no effect for passengers departing Kwinana for any southbound stations. K-pattern trains do not stop at Kwinana on their way to Rockingham.[1]

Station layout[edit]

Kwinana utilises a simple side platform layout with two tracks. Platform 1 is used by trains bound for Perth underground station (these trains generally continue onto the Joondalup Line) whilst platform 2 is used by trains heading south towards Mandurah. Access to the station is provided from the busway platforms adjacent to the western side of the station and a parking lot next to it with a concourse containing faregates above the tracks. A pair of escalators and lifts past these gates heads down to the platform level.[2]
