Work will soon begin to upgrade Cookernup Station on Transwa’s Australind route. The upgrade will see the replacement of the existing low-level platform with a raised platform fully compliant with Disability and Discrimination Act (DDA) standards.
The project will include:
- A new raised platform which will be sheltered, accessible via ramp or stairs, and have seating for three people;
- New bitumen car parking, including one accessible bay, two standard bays, a turning area, and associated kerbing and line-marking;
- New lighting, signage and fencing.
The upgraded station will improve the experience of Transwa passengers travelling to or from Cookernup on the Australind service, which operates twice daily between Bunbury and Perth.
Service disruptions are not anticipated during construction and passengers can continue to use the station as normal.
Work will begin in September with completion expected in early 2020.
