ADCO breaks ground on Lakelands Station project
We reached an exciting milestone on Sunday with ADCO welcoming WA Premier Mark McGowan to turn the first sod on METRONET’s Lakelands Station, celebrating commencement of construction.
The Premier broke ground alongside the transport and local ministers and ADCO’s WA State Manager, James Prattent.
This vital rail project will see the design and construction of the new station, including an entry building with a pedestrian overpass connecting the train platforms, bus interchange, 400-bay car park and associated infrastructure.
Lakelands Station will be built 7km north of Mandurah Station and will service the growing suburbs of Lakelands, Madora Bay, Meadow Springs and surrounds. The new station is expected to open in 2023, alleviating pressure on the nearby Mandurah and Warnbro Stations on the busy Mandurah line.
Our project team also met with the community over the weekend via an information stand at Lakelands Shopping Centre to provide information on the exciting project.
The design of the station draws on local natural features like the wetlands, Serpentine River, Yalbanberup Pool and Paganoni Lake.
The project is jointly funded by the WA State and Commonwealth Governments and construction will support more than 200 jobs.
