Edgewater Station multi-storey car park on track
- Work on the $29.5 million Edgewater Station car park is well advanced
- Reinforced concrete structure is complete; cladding and civil works underway
- Car park will provide a total of 1,450 bays - including 560 new bays
A new $29.5 million multi-storey car park at Edgewater Station is on track for completion by the end of the year.
Construction of the 1,450 bay car park started earlier this year and the project, which will deliver 560 new bays at Edgewater Station, is about 70 per cent complete.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said when the multi-storey facility opened later this year, it would help ease the growing demand for parking at train stations on the Joondalup train line.
"The Joondalup train line is the second busiest heavy rail route in the metropolitan area, with the Mandurah Line experiencing the highest patronage," Mr Nalder said.
"With a growing population in the northern suburbs, the Liberal National Government has invested in road and rail projects to integrate and enhance Perth's transport network systems.
"The new car park at Edgewater will create 560 new car bays for commuters to use and with more than 1,500 passenger boardings at the station each weekday, the extra infrastructure is expected to be in demand."
The Minister said construction of an access ramp, external drainage and other civil works was continuing at the Edgewater site.
"The work schedule in the next few months will focus on installing cladding on the outside of the building, followed by painting and an internal fit-out," he said.
"This will be the latest in a series of public transport projects the State Government will deliver on time and under budget, including the Perth Busport and the Butler rail extension project."
- There are more than 66,000 daily passenger boardings on the Joondalup Line
- New car parks at Edgewater and Aubin Grove stations will bring the total number of train station car bays built by the Government since 2008 to more than 8,900
