Designs released for new Byford Station

Designs have been released and are now open to the public for the new METRONET Byford Station in Western Australia.

The new station will include three platforms to service both the Armadale Line and Australind passengers, and a bus interchange with seven stands to support connecting services.

The station complex will accommodate about 400 parking bays, including ACROD bays and secure shelters for around 100 bicycles, support community safety with bright lighting and CCTV, as well as provide space for meeting and recreation.

The public is now able to have their say on the designs and comment on the development applications until September 2023.

The new Byford Station forms part of the METRONET Byford Rail Extension and will include three platforms to service both the Armadale Line and Australind passengers, and a bus interchange with seven stands to support connecting services.

Residents in Byford and the wider Serpentine-Jarrahdale area will connect to the Perth CBD on a seamless 42-minute train journey once the Byford Rail Extension is complete.

The Armadale Line will be extended approximately eight kilometres south to a new ground-level station in Byford, supporting one of the fastest growing areas in Australia.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said the new station will give local businesses a boost and sport growth opportunities for the local community.

“Included in the design is well-designed lighting and CCTV, which will support community safety in and around the station area,” Saffioti said.

“The proposed design will give the community modern new facilities and connect Perth’s south-east to the CBD for a quick, reliable and cost-effective journey.
