THE Western Australian Government last week revealed the final design for the Aubin Grove Station, which is expected to serve almost 4,000 people a day when it opens next year.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the integrated rail and road project would involve a significant upgrade to Russell Road as well as the new station between the Cockburn Central and Kwinana stations.
According to the Minister, projected patronage figures show there will be 3,900 boardings at the station on an average weekday.
Passenger amenities at the station will include public toilets, a kiosk, ticket and add-value machines, public art, a 2,000-bay car park, a dedicated drop-off area and bicycle facilities. The station will be serviced by six new bus feeder services.
Mr Nalder said the design featured the orange colour used to depict the Mandurah Line, and was particularly important for this project, as the station was being built in the middle of an already-operating rail line, and the Kwinana Freeway.
"To minimise any disruption, most of the structure will be assembled off-site and lifted by crane into place over the freeway and rail line," he said.
Mr Nalder said the designers worked closely with construction company Georgiou and the Public Transport Authority through an early contractor involvement model to develop the design.
