Perth’s latest PT hub

Aubin Grove Station design revealed and will integrate well with bus services in WA

The final design for Aubin Grove Station in Perth’s southern suburbs, which includes six new bus feeder services has been revealed this week.

With almost 4,000 people a day expected to use the station when it opens next year the Western Australian (WA) Government is confident the new station will make public transport an easy option many more, and care is being taken to keep rail services running during construction.

"To minimise any disruption, most of the structure will be assembled off-site and lifted by crane into place over the freeway and rail line," WA transport minister Dean Nalder says.

Passenger amenities include public toilets, a kiosk, ticket and add-value machines, public art, a 2,000-bay car park and a dedicated drop-off area and bicycle facilities. 

The design features the orange colour used to depict the Mandurah Line, and is particularly important for this project, as the station is being built in the middle of an already-operating rail line, and the Kwinana Freeway.

Designers worked closely with construction company Georgiou and the Public Transport Authority (PTA) to develop plans for the state of the art facility.

The integrated rail and road project involves a significant upgrade to Russell Road as well as the new station between the Cockburn Central and Kwinana stations.

Train passengers are encouraged to register for alerts on the Transperth website to get automatic advice about any track and lane closures during construction, with buses replacing trains as construction starts next year.
