ADCO Constructions has started early works on the new Metronet’s Lakelands Station project located between Warnbro and Mandurah stations in Western Australia.

Early works at the project site include modifications to the existing overhead line equipment and rail corridor earthworks are currently underway.

The Lakelands Station is seven kilometres north of Mandurah Station off Lake Valley Drive and will provide another public transportation option for residents to ease the growing demand.

The Federal Western Australian governments are jointly funding the Lakelands Station, which is set to open in 2023.

During the construction phase, the project is expected to create up to 200 jobs.

Major construction work on the new station is anticipated to commence in October that will include construction of toilets, a bus interchange, bicycle parking facilities, and around 400 parking bays.

It will also include station’s entry building, pedestrian overpass to provide access to platforms on either side of the rail line, pedestrian and cyclist-friendly pathways, as well as landscaping.

The Western Australian government forecasts that the new station would initially generate approximately 2,300 daily boardings, increasing to around 3,500 by 2031.

Australian Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts Minister Hon Paul Fletcher said: “The Morrison Government is getting on with delivering infrastructure projects that improve congestion and safety for commuters across Australia, making it easier for them to move around our capital cities and ensuring they get home quickly and safely.

“Under the Urban Congestion Fund, we are delivering 177 individual packages of works nationwide.

Lakelands Station project brings the total number of Urban Congestion Fund projects that are now completed or underway nationwide to 68. A further 47 are expected to start construction later this year.

“This is just the latest example of us delivering on our commitment to progress critical infrastructure projects across the country under our record $110 billion, 10-year infrastructure investment pipeline, which is helping to drive Australia's world-leading economic recovery.”
