Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
The State Government has awarded a $32 million contract to John Holland Pty Ltd to build stations at Canning Bridge, Bull Creek and Murdoch.
ON THE RAILS: An artist impression of how the new Mandurah to Perth trains stations will look.
Bull Creek and Murdoch are expected to be among the busiest commuter stations on the Perth network when the southern line opens in 2006.
During peak hour, trains will pull into the stations every five minutes, servicing an estimated 8000 passenger boardings a day.
The three stations will be the first of nine to be built between the Narrows Bridge and Mandurah.
Murdoch and Bull Creek will be major interchanges with feeder bus services, car drop-off and pick-up facilities, pedestrian and bicycle access and parking for more than 1500 cars.
Travel time to Perth will be 11 minutes from Murdoch and nine minutes from Bull Creek.
The Canning Bridge station will be built on the site of the existing bus interchange and is the only station on the new southern line where long-term parking cannot be provided.
John Holland built the new Clarkson station on the northern line and earlier this year won the contract to build the new rail line to Mandurah.
Work on the new stations will start in May next year. Preparatory earthworks at Murdoch and Bull Creek are already under way.
Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said contracts to build the remaining six stations on the southern line would be awarded next year.
Ms MacTiernan yesterday opened the $8 million Armadale train station, which is part of a wider plan to revitalise the Armadale town centre.
