West Leederville Planning and Urban Design Study

The West Leederville Planning and Urban Design Study concentrates on the area of West Leederville between the Leederville and West Leederville train stations and centres around Cambridge Street.  

The study sought to capitalise on West Leederville's strategic location and to take advantage of:

  • close proximity to central Perth and the Subiaco and Leederville Town centres;
  • good access to the Fremantle and Joondalup train lines, plus multiple bus routes along Cambridge Street;
  • good access to the freeway;
  • development potential in the event of a redeveloped Subiaco Oval; and 
  • an attractive, inner city character.

New Green CAT bus service

The new Transperth Green CAT service has commenced operation, connecting Leederville Station and Esplanade Busport through West Perth

A new bus interchange has been built between Southport and Cambridge Street near Leederville Train Station to service the route with a new staircase from the existing overpass to connect with the train station. For more information on the Green CAT service visit the Transperth website.
