Currambine railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Joondalup line, 29.2 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburb of Currambine.

History[edit]

Currambine station opened on 8 August 1993 as the terminus of the Joondalup line. [1][2] It was designed as both a passenger station and a cleaning depot. The cleaning depot also enabled the storage of up to six two carriage trains (three per track), which negated the transfer of rollingstock from the Claisebrook depot to enable a quicker commencement of each day's services.

The original station was found to be in the way of the gazetted Mitchell Freeway reserve, so the station was demolished and rebuilt 60 metres east of the original site as part of enabling works for the future extension of the line to Clarkson, and connection with a new Nowergup depot designed for the storage and maintenance of newer B-series rolling stock. It opened on 4 October 2004.[2][3]
