History[edit]

The station was originally constructed as the Canning Bridge bus station, enabling passengers to transfer between bus routes using the Kwinana Freeway and those travelling via the Canning Highway. During construction of the Mandurah line, the freeway-level bus platforms were removed and converted to rail platforms. To make room for the rail corridor, the 120 metre long, 1,800 tonne Canning Highway bus bridge was moved 9.5 metres southwest by pulling the bridge sideways over teflon mats. This was a more economical alternative to constructing a completely new bridge. The move did not disrupt ongoing traffic on the Kwinana Freeway.[1][2]

The station opened along with the rest of the Mandurah line on 23 December 2007.[3][4]

Services[edit]

Canning Bridge station is served by Transperth Mandurah line services.[5]
