Thornlie Railway Station is a Transperth railway station 17 km from Perth railway station, in Western Australia, on a spur line of the Armadale line. The station was officially opened on 7 August 2005, and normal train and bus services started the following day.

From Perth, the branch route starts from Cannington, bypasses Beckenham, and then switches to a central track which then travels underneath the Albany Highway-Roe Highway flyover. The tracks then returns to ground level and runs parallel to the freight lines until it reaches the station.

The station was designed to be compatible with an extension of the line, with most speculation that this will occur after the Southern Suburbs Railway and the New MetroRail project is completed. The possible extension of the Thornlie line may travel to Canning Vale and join the Mandurah line at Cockburn Central.[citation needed]

History[edit]

This segment was originally part of the proposed Southern Suburbs Railway planned in 1999. However, an alternative route was announced by the Government in 2002. To justify the completion of Kenwick Tunnel and other infrastructure, the route was converted into a short spur line. Only one side of the tunnel is currently used, however it can be used on occasion.
