Work to upgrade North Dandalup Station on Transwa’s Australind route is now complete. The upgrade saw the replacement of the existing low-level platform with a raised platform fully compliant with Disability and Discrimination Act (DDA) standards.
The project included:
- A new raised platform which is sheltered, accessible via ramp or stairs, and has seating for three people;
- New bitumen car parking, including one accessible bay, two standard bays, and associated kerbing and line-marking;
- Upgrade of existing pedestrian paths;
- New lighting, signage and fencing.
The upgraded station will improve the experience of Transwa passengers travelling to or from North Dandalup on the Australind service, which operates twice daily between Bunbury and Perth.
Work began in September 2019 with the new station officially opened on January 23, 2020 by Hon Rota Saffioti MLA, Minister for Transport.
