Kelmscott Station upgrade to move to second phase


Work is expected to start soon on a major rebuild of the Kelmscott Train Station.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said today that Doric Group had signed a $10.8million contract with the Public Transport Authority (PTA) for the work at Kelmscott.

“Work on the station proper should start in September and is due for completion by September next year,” Ms MacTiernan said.

The project included:

  • upgrading the existing platforms and the bus-way;
  • a new shelter canopy and Transit Officer booth;
  • new drop-off bays, entry shelters and public toilets; and
  • a pedestrian/bicycle path and a roundabout off Streich Avenue.

“The first stage of upgrading the rail precinct, resurfacing and expanding the car park on Albany Highway, was completed successfully earlier this year under a separate contract,” the Minister said.

“We constructed a new car park, which now has 98 bays and has been available to the public from the beginning of May.”

Ms MacTiernan said the next part of the work would involve turning the Railway Avenue car park into a temporary bus interchange to allow construction to start on the main part of the station.

Alternative temporary parking would be made available if possible.

The project is part of the PTA’s Building Better Train Stations program.
