Warnbro Station complete
Warnbro is the latest station to be completed on the Southern Suburbs Railway (SSR) project.
Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan today announced that construction had been completed on the $15million station and it had been handed over to the Public Transport Authority (PTA).
“This represents another milestone for the SSR and brings us one step closer towards completion of the new railway,” Ms MacTiernan said.
“Warnbro Station, at the intersection of Ennis Avenue and Safety Bay Road, will be a major Park ‘n’ Ride Station with 700 car bays.
“Other facilities at the station include SmartRider fare gates, extensive CCTV, bicycle lockers and U-rails, public toilets, lifts and escalators.”
The Minister said the Carpenter Government was making decisions for the future and was using the strong economy to deliver better services to Western Australia.
Peel MLA Paul Papalia welcomed the announcement and said the station would become an integral part of the community for many years to come.
“The local community has watched this station take shape and now we look forward to it becoming part of the Southern Suburbs Railway project,” Mr Papalia said.
Warnbro Station has been built by Doric Brierty JV as part of Package C/A on the SSR. This package also includes the construction of Rockingham Station, which is expected to be completed and handed over in May.
From the Warnbro station, it will take 36 minutes to travel to Perth or 12 minutes to reach Mandurah.
Services will run approximately every 10 minutes during peak and every 15 minutes off-peak. The station is expected to have approximately 2,000 boardings per day.
