Thornlie railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is the terminus of the Thornlie spur of the Armadale line, seventeen kilometres from Perth station serving the suburb of Thornlie.

History[edit]

In December 1999, leglislation was tabled by the Government of Western Australia to build the Southern Suburbs Railway from a junction with the Armadale line east of Beckenham station passing beneath the Albany Highway, Roe Highway and Kwinana freight line via the Kewdale Tunnel, then paralleling the freight line south to Jandakot before continuing via the median strip of the Kwinana Freeway.

However, in 2002, the Southern Suburbs Railway (Mandurah line) was altered to operate via a more direct route to Perth.[1] By this stage the first part of the Kenwick Tunnel had been built.[2]

To justify the completion of Kenwick Tunnel and other infrastructure, the route was converted into a short spur line to Thornlie.[3][4]

Provision was made for the line to be extended south to join the Mandurah line at Cockburn Central. The spur and Thornlie station opened on 7 August 2005.[5][6]

Services[edit]

Thornlie station is served by Transperth Thornlie line services.[7]
