New design images showing concepts for major new public open spaces have been released for the first time, as part of planning for the jointly funded Federal and State Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal project.
Up to six hectares of new public space will be created by removing six level crossings on the Armadale Line and replacing them with an elevated rail between Victoria Park and Beckenham.
The concept designs showcase a range of new public amenities including playgrounds, fitness zones, basketball courts, skate parks, new walking and cycling paths, public art, and activation spaces for community activities and events.
The new design images have been released as part of the Development Application for the Carlisle and Oats Steet Station precincts.
The project will also see five new elevated stations built at Oats Street, Carlisle, Queens Park, Cannington and Beckenham, which will integrate with the local community through architecture and design.
The high-level concept designs were workshopped and refined by incorporating feedback from local government, community reference groups and the broader community on what they would like to see around these stations.
The designs have now been submitted for formal public comment and approval by the Western Australian Planning Commission.
A public comment period is now open for 21 days along the Town of Victoria Park section of the project which includes Oats Street and Carlisle stations.
The community can have their say on the DA at the DPLH website.
Concept designs for the City of Canning section will be released in coming months with a formal advertised public comment period. This area covers Queens Park and Cannington stations and surrounding areas.
