Armadale Station contract awarded
9 October 2003
|| Perth-based Consolidated Constructions Pty Ltd has won a $5.02 million contract to build a new railway station at Armadale.
Announcing the contract today, Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said the new station would be the major component of a project that would bring life back to Armadale.
“Consolidated Constructions will re-locate the main entry to the new station and create a public square at the front,” Ms MacTiernan said.
“The next stage will see the relocation of the Park and Ride and bus transfer facilities to the western side of the railway and commercial and residential development around the eastern side.

“Planning for the station redevelopment has been carried out by the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia in conjunction with the Armadale Redevelopment Authority,” Ms MacTiernan said.
“It will help bring more life and activity into the Jull Street Mall through improved access, security and visual and social amenity.”
The new station, to be built as part of the State Government’s Building Better Train Stations program, will offer better access to train services and improved security.
In August this year, Ms MacTiernan announced that Consolidated Constructions had been awarded a $2.3 million contract to carry out track works associated with the relocation of the station.
The track work started last month (September) and is due for completion by 25 November 2003.
Work on the station will start on November 26 and is scheduled for completion by 10 May 2004.
