The Perth-Bunbury Australind rail service will revert to stopping at Armadale instead of Kelmscott from Sunday, April 5.
The change follows many requests from individuals, pensioner groups and the Armadale Council and is in line with a ministerial commitment given that the service would revert to Armadale when the electrified suburban network was introduced.
Transport Minister Pam Beggs today said Armadale station had similar parking, bus interchange and telephone facilities as Kelmscott. As well, Armadale had a Westrail booking office.
Mrs Beggs said the Australind was predominantly an express service between the two cities with few stops and a tight timetable.
The change would not affect Westrail's road coach services from Esperance, Albany and Collie, which would continue to stop at the Kelmscott transfer terminal.
