Approximately 41-minutes from Perth by train, Alkimos Station will serve the future city-scale Alkimos Central development, which has been master planned by DevelopmentWA to provide much needed key service amenities to the area.
Located on the corner of Romeo Road and Marmion Avenue, west of Wanneroo Road, the station will have a ground-level concourse and station building, with two platforms located in a cutting and connections to both sides of the development.
The universally accessible station will have:
- passenger amenity: public toilets, public services (such as vending machines), kiosk, passenger ticketing/information, staff amenities, station administration offices, storage/cleaning and operational facilities;
- pedestrian/cycle access: connected to shared path, with two secure bicycle parking shelters, bike u-rails and ability to add additional secure bicycle parking shelters in the future;
- bus interchange: six-stands with weather protection, seating and information facilities. The interchange includes four layover bays; and
- vehicle access: dedicated passenger drop-off area and approximately 600 parking bays.

Local landmarks and early investigations conducted with METRONET’S Noongar Reference Group to identify important local Noongar themes, such as the limestone pinnacles and Melaleuca huegelii, has influenced Alkimos Station’s architecture.
Melaleucas are often referred to as ‘Teatree’ or ‘Paperbark’ trees. Melaleuca huegelii was extremely important to Noongar people due to its versatility – large pieces could provide coverage for shelters, smaller pieces were used to carry water and wrap food, and the leaves could be crushed for the medicinal properties of the aromatic oil, which could be brewed as a healing tea. It is also a well-known native species familiar to most Western Australians, and often planted in local parks or on verges.
