The last two stations on the Mandurah line – Mandurah and Warnbro – have been closed since Friday night and won’t reopen until Monday morning.

Commuters travelling to Domain Stadium for the clash between West Coast and Fremantle can catch replacement buses from Mandurah and Warnbro to Rockingham Station and then continue their journey on the train.

On the way home footy fans can go as far as Rockingham but will have to catch buses back to Warnbro or Mandurah.

Transperth’s spokesman David Hynes said: “We will be operating a boosted rail replacement service. We’ll have at least three buses meeting every footy special train after the game”

He said if football fans did not want to catch replacement buses they could drive to Rockingham station – which had close to 200 bays – and catch the train from there.

Transperth’s website was down for a short time on Sunday morning but is now back online. Follow WAtoday on Twitter
