Smoking Ceremony marks Lakelands Station works commencement
Winjan Corporation provided a Welcome to Country, Wanna Stick and smoking ceremony at the Lakelands Station site to mark the start of ADCO’s early works, with our client METRONET and consultants.
Winjan Corporation provides Noongar cultural and community services in the Mandurah area, south of Perth.
This vital rail project will see the design and construct 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.
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.
