The $80 million Aubin Grove Station will cater to the growing communities in Perth’s southern suburbs.
Like many of stations along the Mandurah Line, Aubin Grove will be located in the median of the Kwinana Freeway, just north of Russell Road.
More than 3900 passengers are expected to board at Aubin Grove each day, which will be connected by two footbridges to link the station to the communities on either side of the freeway.
Features of the project include:
• A multi-modal station with approximately 2000 parking bays
• Six buses feeder services into Cockburn and Aubin Grove stations
• Bicycle facilities and connections to local paths
• Two three-railcar trains acquired to accommodate the extra passengers
• Passenger amenities, including toilets, lifts, stairs and escalators
- Lead design consultant and ECI contractor appointed for Aubin Grove Station
- $57 million station will be located between Kwinana and Cockburn stations
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said CAMPS - a joint venture between Coniglio Ainsworth Architects Pty Ltd and M. P. S. Architects - had been selected as the lead design consultant for the project. Georgiou has been appointed as the early contractor involvement (ECI) contractor.
“CAMPS will work closely with Georgiou under an early contractor involvement model,” Mr Nalder said.
“This ensures project planning is on the right track before the construction tender is finalised, and gives the State Government greater certainty on delivering the Aubin Grove Station on time and on budget.
“Projected patronage figures show there will be 3,900 boardings expected at the station every day, so it’s important that we get the planning and design right.”
Design and construction of the $57 million station will begin in 2015 and be completed late 2016. Passenger amenities at the new station will include public toilets, staff amenities, a kiosk, ticketing and add-value machines, as well as public art.
Coniglio Ainsworth is the same architect firm that designed the futuristic looking Butler Station
Details of the construction process, community impacts and managing noise, dust and lighting will be developed when the contractor is secured.
Construction will begin in 2015 and be completed by the end of 2016.
