Aubin Grove Station design revealed
The final design for Aubin Grove Station has been revealed, with almost 4,000 people a day expected to board the Mandurah Line trains when the station 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.
Projected patronage figures show there will be 3,900 boardings at the station on an average weekday.
Passenger amenities 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.
Designers worked closely with construction company Georgiou and the Public Transport Authority through an early contractor involvement model to develop the design.
