Rockingham City Centre transit system is on track.

30/01/07

The $15million Rockingham City Centre Transit System will be up and running when train services begin in July this year.

Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said today an $8.4million contract for road works along the route had been awarded to Western Australian based Works Infrastructure Pty Ltd.

“This service will provide a speedy and convenient link between Rockingham Train Station, the CBD and the foreshore,” Ms MacTiernan said.

“It will enable local people to make best use of the train service and help attract more visitors to Rockingham’s shopping and recreation centres.

“Four modern, distinctively marked gas-powered buses will provide a service with 15 minute frequency and 10 stops along the way.

"The contract includes widening existing roads, building some new roads, providing street furniture and constructing a dedicated bus way and a transit mall in the CBD.

“Work will start as soon as possible, with completion due by the end of July.

“An underpass at Ennis Avenue has already been completed to allow the buses to leave and enter the Rockingham station.”

Ms MacTiernan said the project was being managed by the Public Transport Authority with the support of the Rockingham Development Office, a partnership between LandCorp, the City of Rockingham and the Department for Planning and Infrastructure.
