The designs for Ellenbrook Station, the terminus for the 21-kilometre Morley-Ellenbrook Line in Perth’s north-east, have been released to the public.
The design for Ellenbrook Station is the first of the five Morley-Ellenbrook Line stations to be released.
The rail line, including five new stations at Morley, Noranda, Malaga, Whiteman Park and Ellenbrook, is being delivered by the MELConnx Consortium, which is led by Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction and also includes British engineering company, Arup.
The project also involves a re-location of the existing Bayswater Station, and a future station is planned at Bennett Springs East.
As Perth’s largest public transport project since the Mandurah Line, this project will support approximately 6500 jobs and help shape vibrant new communities.
The Station design, colour and materials take inspiration from the Swan Coastal Plain, including the colours and patterns of local sunsets, soil, bush and waterways.
The ground level concourse features an open plan and welcoming design from station entry to the end of the platform.
Apart from the standard amenities such as a kiosk, public restrooms and universal access, the station’s design also features a car park with 500 bays and secure bike shelters for cyclists. A 12-bus interchange will provide plenty of bus connections.
Once the project receives Development Approval for Ellenbrook Station, the design will be developed in more detail.
The Ellenbrook community can expect to see early works in late 2021, with heavy works to begin in 2022.
