About the Project

The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will be Perth’s first east-west cross line connection, making travel more flexible while providing a higher level of public transport service to Perth’s south-eastern suburbs.
Connecting the Mandurah and Armadale-Thornlie lines will open new opportunities for longer-term developments around the new Nicholson Road and Ranford Road stations.
The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will support growth and accessibility across the south-eastern suburbs by providing direct access to employment and recreation opportunities while supporting about 1,680 jobs through the new stations and upgrades to the existing Thornlie, Cockburn Central and Stadium stations.
For 20 days between 26 December 2021 and 14 January 2022 the Mandurah rail line was blockaded (closed) between Glen Iris and Cockburn to reconstruct the Mandurah line tracks on a new alignment to make space for the future construction of the new Thornlie-Cockburn Link. This was the longest ever blockade of a PTA line and affected the busiest section of the network.
The works were successfully completed, and the line was handed back to passenger service on schedule at full line speed (130 km/h) and without operational restriction, the first time this has happened after a major blockade on the PTA network.
