City West railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Fremantle line, 1.6 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburb of West Perth.

History[edit]

The original West Perth station opened in 1883 as North Perth. It was renamed West Perth in 1890. The station closed on 1 September 1979 along with the rest of the Fremantle line, re-opening on 29 July 1983 when services were restored. It is now a major transport option for students of the nearby widely renowned Perth Modern School. [1][2]

On 18 June 1986, a new West Perth station opened on the other side of the West Perth Subway.[3] It was renamed City West on 19 November 1987 in conjunction with the opening of an adjacent Parry Corporation commercial development of the same name.[4]

Services[edit]

City West station is served by Transperth Fremantle line services from Fremantle to Perth that continue through to Midland via the Midland line.[5][6]
