Mandurah Station Multi-Storey Car Park

Overview

The $32 million Mandurah Station multi-storey car park will better meet passenger needs at Mandurah Station and encourage more people to use public transport. The project is joint-funded by the State and Federal governments.

Typically, more than 70 per cent of Mandurah Station passengers access the station by car, with the existing car park reaching 90 per cent capacity by around 9am on weekdays. The new ground plus two-level facility will increase the station’s parking capacity by about 700 bays, to around 1800 bays in total.

The project will significantly improve public transport access for Mandurah residents, as well as for communities in the wider Peel region.

Main works for the project are currently under way with the new multi-storey car park expected to open in the second half of 2021.

Project Features

The new multi-storey car park will be built within the footprint of the existing northern station car park and will include: 

  • Three levels of parking (ground level plus two storeys) with an open-air top deck;
  • Security and safety features including adequate lighting for pedestrians, CCTV cameras and duress buttons at lifts;
  • A main stairwell, emergency exit stairwells, and two lifts;
  • SmartParker machines;
  • Electric car charging stations; and
  • Façade screening to maximise natural light and ventilation, provide visual amenity and protect users from the elements.

Design elements of the project, including the multi-storey car park’s façade, are still being finalised. The structure will take the surrounding area into consideration, and opportunities to acknowledge Mandurah’s diverse history and culture through landscaping, artwork and the built environment will be assessed as the project progresses.

Vehicle access to the new multi-storey facility will be via the Galgoyl Road/ Morfitt Street roundabout, which will be modified as part of the project. The main pedestrian entrance will be located in the southeast corner of the structure and will include lifts and stairs. Use of the new multi-storey car park will cost the same as parking at any other Transperth station, which is currently charged at $2 per 24hr period or part thereof.

The staff parking compound currently located in the northern station car park will be relocated to the southern car park as part of the project. Entry and exit to the station’s central car park will also change to accommodate the forecourt of the multi-storey car park.

Main works for the project are currently under way with the new multi-storey car park expected to open in the second half of 2021.

Construction

Changes to southern and central car parks (from early August 2020)

To accommodate the new multi-storey car park structure, some permanent changes to the station’s central and southern car parks are required. This includes relocating the staff parking compound from the northern to the southern car park, and moving the entry/exit point of the central car park. A number of car bays in these areas will be permanently removed to allow the required changes to take place. Motorists and pedestrians should use caution and follow the direction of traffic management throughout the station.

Northern car park closure and temporary car park (from 31 August 2020)

During construction of the new multi-storey car park, Mandurah Station’s existing northern car park will be closed. Temporary passenger parking is available off Morfitt Street and is free of charge, but the overall number of parking bays at the station is significantly reduced. If possible, passengers should consider alternative ways of accessing the station during construction, such as by catching a bus, getting dropped off, carpooling, cycling, or walking.

Project Documents

  • General Project

  • Why is a multi-storey car park being built at Mandurah Station?

    Typically, more than 70 per cent of Mandurah Station passengers access the station by car, with the existing car park reaching 90 per cent capacity by around 9am on weekdays. The new multi-storey car park will significantly improve public transport access for Mandurah residents, as well as for communities in the wider Peel region.

  • How will passenger parking be managed during construction?

    On Monday 31 August 2020 Mandurah Station’s existing northern car park will close, allowing works to begin on the new multi-storey car park. Temporary passenger parking will be available off Morfitt Street and will be free of charge, but the overall number of parking bays will be significantly reduced. If possible, passengers should consider alternative ways of accessing the station during construction, such as by catching a bus, getting dropped off, carpooling, cycling, or walking.

    For more information about the disruption and to plan your journey, visit the Transperth website.

  • How will impacts to nearby residents and businesses be managed during construction?

    Impact to nearby residents and businesses will be minimised wherever possible during construction, however some disruption may be unavoidable. Major impacts, including out-of-hours construction, will be communicated to affected residents in advance.

    As per standard practice, nearby residents and businesses will be offered pre-condition surveys of their properties prior to construction starting. 

  • Will the multi-storey car park be staffed and what security measures will be in place?

    The car park itself will not be permanently staffed during operating hours. It will be fitted with CCTV cameras (throughout) and duress buttons (outside lifts), and regularly patrolled as part of wider network surveillance. The open-air top level and façade screening will maximise natural light during the day, and the car park will be fully lit at night. The car park will be automatically closed each day following the last train service, although cars will still be able to exit.

  • Why can’t the multi-storey car park be built closer to Allnut Street / the station entrance?

    The northern-most station car park is the most suitable area to accommodate a multi-storey car park of the size planned. The location also leaves the space closest to the station entrance free for potential future development.

  • What changes will be made to cater for the increased traffic accessing the car park?

    The existing roundabout at the intersection of Galgoyl Road and Morfitt Street will be modified to provide access to the new car park. No other road changes are anticipated.

    Entry and exit to the station’s central car park will also change to accommodate the forecourt of the multi-storey car park.

  • Will there be a covered walkway between the new multi-storey car park and station entrance?

    Most of the distance between the new multi-storey car park and station entrance is already sheltered as passengers will walk through the existing bus interchange to access the station.

  • What measures will be in place for passengers with increased accessibility needs?

    The new multi-storey car park will be fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and will include lifts and accessible car parking bays. The pedestrian connection between the car park and station entrance will also be compliant with DDA standards.

  • Will the new multi-storey car park have toilets?

    No, the new car park will not have toilets. Toilet facilities, including an accessible toilet, are located at the station entrance.      

  • How much will it cost to use the new multi-storey car park?

    Use of the new multi-storey car park will cost the same as parking at any other Transperth station, which is currently charged at $2 per 24hr period or part thereof.
