Noticed 2 lifts for the platform. Very Good!

Lift redundancy is sensible ...

Most things on the Transperth network are, including train frequency ...  :P

Just as long as they keep the Publuc Transport Centre with its monolithic Soviet look intact.  Locals call it KGB HQ, and I'm very fond of it.

The actual Transperth station connected to it is however in desperate need of this upgrade.

Cockburn Gazette --> Aubin Grove train station ready for opening

Quote
PUBLIC transport users are just days away from being able to test the newest addition to the metropolitan rail network, with the covers coming off the Aubin Grove station on Sunday.

The first train will depart the $125 million transport hub, which includes a new station, two new railcar sets and the widening of Russell Road bridge, at 10.56am, stopping all stations to Perth.

During a walkthrough last week, project director Ben Amrom said the station would be “100 per cent ready to go”.

“All it (the station) needs now is a good clean, ready for people to enjoy,” he said.

Mr Amrom has worked on the creation of multiple stations and said this was his most challenging.

“Logistically it was extremely difficult, so it was important to make the design as simple as possible, picking materials that were readily available so that everything was built within the timeframe,” he said.

He said the Kwinana Freeway detours introduced over three weekends last June to allow cranes to lift pre-fabricated station modules in place were booked 12 months in advance.

“We were basically tied to critical shutdown periods we had booked 12 months in advance, so everything had to be constantly targeted to meet those deadlines, otherwise the station probably wouldn’t be complete today. That was extremely challenging,” he said.

The station, constructed about 3.5km south of Cockburn Central, is expected to handle about 3900 boardings each day.

Mr Amrom said the station’s layout was simple and “all designed around moving people”.

“It is a station that has been long awaited and together with the duplication of Russell Road bridge, it will make commuting a lot easier for the immediate surrounding community,” he said.
