The new multi-storey carpark at Edgewater Station is on track for completion by the end of the year.
Construction of the 1,450 bay carpark started earlier this year and the project, which will deliver 560 new bays at Edgewater Station, is now around 70 per cent complete.
Transport Minister the Hon. Dean Nalder, who took a tour of the carpark this morning (August 10), said when the multi-storey facility opened later this year it would help ease the growing demand for parking at train stations on the Joondalup Train Line.
“The Joondalup Train Line is the second busiest heavy rail route in the metropolitan area, with the Mandurah Line experiencing the highest patronage,” Mr Nalder said.
“The new carpark at Edgewater will create 560 new car bays for commuters to use and with more than 1,500 passenger boardings at the station each weekday, the extra infrastructure is expected to be in demand.”
The Minister said construction of an access ramp, external drainage and other civil works was continuing at the Edgewater site.
“The work schedule in the next few months will focus on installing cladding on the outside of the building, followed by painting and an internal fit-out,” Mr Nalder said.
“This will be the latest in a series of public transport projects the State Government will deliver on time and under budget, including the Perth Busport and the Butler Rail Extension project.”
