METRONET transforming Perth’s southern suburbs
It's full steam ahead for Perth's tenth METRONET project, Lakelands Station, with the first design images unveiled today.
ADCO Constructions was awarded the design-and-construct contract in January to build the station, which will be located 7km north of Mandurah Station off Lake Valley Drive and will service the growing suburbs of Lakelands, Madora Bay, Meadow Springs and surrounds.
The new station will include a pedestrian overpass connecting platforms on either side of the rail line, cycling facilities, bus interchange, toilets, approximately 400-bay car park, pedestrian and cyclist-friendly pathways, and landscaping featuring native species.
Work will commence in July and is anticipated to support 200 jobs during construction.
The $32 million METRONET Mandurah Station multi-storey car park is progressing well, with construction at the halfway mark.
Concrete pours are currently underway on levels 1 and 2 and are expected to continue until July. Once complete, work can begin on installing services. When complete the carpark will increase parking capacity at the station to about 1800 bays.
The project is being delivered by local Balcatta company PS Structures Pty Ltd and is estimated to support up to 120 local jobs.
Both projects are jointly funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments. The Commonwealth has contributed 80 per cent of funding towards Lakelands Station and 50 per cent of funding to the Mandurah Multi-Storey Carpark project.
