Greenwood railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Joondalup line, 17.8 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburb of Greenwood.

History[edit]

Originally proposed as the Hepburn station under the Northern Suburbs Transit System Masterplan in 1989 to coincide with the Hepburn Heights development. The master plan placed the station as a future station until demand of the railway and suburbs warranted the construction of the station.

After being promised a number of times but not delivered,[1][2] construction finally began in 2004 with the aim of reducing peak demand at the nearby Warwick and Whitfords stations, opening on 29 January 2005.[3][4][5]
