The Government of Western Australia will provide 11 new buse services as part of the now complete Butler Extension Project.

The new rail station is now complete and trains will be tested on the lines later this year. 

As part of the project, the State Government will provide 11 new buses to provide feeder services to accommodate the expected 2,000 bus and train passengers each day.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder says the station will open in September for passenger use, once the signalling, overhead wiring and technical works were completed.

"This extension, 7.5km north of Clarkson Station, is a vital step in linking the residents of Butler and surrounding areas to the Joondalup Line," he says.

"We are working hard to deliver this project ahead of schedule, hopefully in time for the September school holidays."

The station features CCTV cameras linked to the PTA’s high-tech Central Monitoring Room, digital display boards, extensive landscaping, and public art.

There are also 900 car bays and a route called a principal shared pathway so passengers can walk or cycle to and from the station.

The project has come $20 million inside the budgeted $241 million, and will open about three months earlier than originally expected.
