Contents

The station is planned to close.

History

Welshpool station opened in 1889 as one of the original stations on the Armadale line. [1]

Future

The station is planned to close as part of a Metronet project for the removal of level crossings on the Armadale railway line. The project involves the removal of the Welshpool Road level crossing. Because Welshpool railway station does not have high patronage, and it is close to Welshpool Road and a bridge that Leach Highway goes over, it was determined that it was not possible to remove the Welshpool Road level crossing without closing Welshpool railway station. [2]

Services

Welshpool station is served by Transperth Armadale/Thornlie line services. [3]
