The Western Australia government has released $2.6 million towards the cost of redeveloping the Mirrabooka Bus Station.

Planning Minister John Day says the redevelopment is part of a broader initiative to revitalise the Mirrabooka Regional Centre involving the City of Stirling and the Federal Government.

"This is an important initiative that involves rebuilding a bus station that was initially developed in the 1970s," Day says.

"Accordingly, I have released previously allocated funds to the Public Transport Authority, which will manage the project.

"I’m delighted that the Federal Government has contributed $2.4 million in additional funding that will be used for the bus station and town centre works."

The Minister said the State’s $2.6million commitment was in addition to $350,000 of State Government funding, with the support of the City of Stirling, already expended on the Mirrabooka Regional Centre Improvement Strategy.

The funding covered the cost of the development of a governance structure, a cost benefit analysis and work towards an updated outline development plan for the overall centre, as well as a design and costing report for the bus station upgrade.
