Kelmscott Station redevelopment begins with car park


Work starts this week on the first stage of the Kelmscott Station redevelopment.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said AARDE Constructions had been awarded a $627,000 contract to redevelop the car park on the Albany Highway side of the station.

“The Albany Highway car park will be closed for about eight weeks, during which time rail patrons can use the Railway Avenue car park instead,” Ms MacTiernan said.

“The existing 37 car park bays will be increased to almost 100 sealed bays including three accessible bays, plus new drainage.

“Two trees and the old public toilets will be removed from the car park, but temporary public toilets will be available until the renewal is completed.

“Also, the northern crossing maze will close temporarily during this stage, but station signage will direct customers to alternative routes.”

The Minister said that works were the start of an $8million revamp of the station, as part of the Government’s Building Better Train Stations program, managed by the Public Transport Authority.

“The station will get a new outer structure as well as new paving finishes and furniture, lighting and signage,” she said.

“The project is an important part of the renewal of Kelmscott’s retail and commercial centre.”

Ms MacTiernan asked Kelmscott residents and train customers to be patient as the work was completed.

“This is the first part of a carefully staged program designed to minimise disruption to patrons while the development is completed,” she said.
