Project Status: In progress
A trial of enhanced services on the AvonLink train, between Perth and Northam, commenced in December 2014. The Royalties for Regions investment of $6.575 million over 3 years for the AvonLink Enhancement Project has seen extra return services introduced on the route and will include additional feeder services, improved ticketing and increased marketing.
The extra services will run from Northam at:
- 10:00am and 4:00pm - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
- 8.30am - Saturdays.
The extra services will run from Perth - boarding at Midland Station at:
- 8.15am and 2:00pm - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
- 3.35pm on Saturdays.
The enhancement project also provides one extra return service for 10 special events a year, providing an excellent incentive for Perth residents and tourists to visit the Avon region.
The service will be reviewed in 2016 to ensure increased services remain viable.
