Phase 2 of Walkley Station’s stair repairs to begin

Starting May 27, the northwest stair tower and the southeast stair tower will be closed for construction. The elevator to/from Stop 3A in the northwest tower will also be closed.

Customers who require the elevator to navigate between platforms will need to adjust their travel in order to exit in the right direction. In some cases, this will mean travelling to a different station to use the elevator and doubling back to arrive on the other side of the platform.
