A ground-breaking milestone was celebrated at METRONET’s Lakelands Station project site, with early works now in progress on the Mandurah Line’s newest station.
Early works at the site, which include modifications to existing overhead line equipment and rail corridor earthworks kicked off construction.
Major construction is expected to begin in October which will include building the station’s entry building, pedestrian overpass, platforms on either side of the rail line, toilets, cycling facilities, bus interchange, approximately 400-bay car park, pedestrian and cyclist-friendly pathways, and landscaping.
The start of early works is the latest in a growing list of 2021 milestones for the project following contract award in January and the unveiling of preliminary designs – which aim to complement local natural features – in May. These designs also formed part of the project’s Development Approval application, which is expected to be determined by September.
Lakelands Station is set to open in 2023.
