The $1.8 million Greenwood Station Shelter Upgrade will improve passengers' experience by increasing the covered area on platforms from 20 to 60 per cent. This will ensure that public transport is a viable option regardless of weather conditions.
The planned upgrade will bring Greenwood Station's facilities into line with others along the Joondalup Line and improve safety by reducing crowding near the covered stairs.
The project will involve:
- Building of a high quality grade station shelter, covering up to 60 per cent of each platform;
- Install CCTV
- Install lighting
- Install a public speaker system
- Provide drainage facilities
Works began in late April, and are expected to finish in early August.
To safely complete the works, temporary safety fencing has been installed on the platform, reducing the width by 2 metres. Passengers can still access the entire length of the platform; lifts and escalators will not be affected.
The project will require some disruption of the Mitchell Freeway, as well as out of hours work. Where possible works will be undertaken off-site and assembled on-site in order to minimise patron and traffic impacts.
