AUBIN GROVE TRAIN STATION
In 2015, Georgiou was awarded the $105 million Aubin Grove Train Station and Russell Road Upgrade for the Public Transport Authority (PTA) and Main Roads Western Australia.
Designed to cater for the growing communities in Perth’s southern suburbs, the multi-modal Aubin Grove Train Station was the first island rail platform to be built within a “live rail” environment in Western Australia.
Scope of works involved construction of a new train/bus station, 2,000-bay carpark, upgrade of the Russell Road bridge and associated road works. The multi-modal interchange station involved:
- two 150-metre long island platforms;
- island platforms 10-metre wide;
- station entry buildings on both sides of the Kwinana Freeway; and
- footbridges from either side of the freeway linked to the station concourse located above the island platform between the tracks in the freeway median.
This was the first project in Western Australia that required the shutdown of a freeway. Georgiou successfully achieved this by utilising adjacent on and off ramps to allow the continuous flow of traffic around the site.
The station was officially opened in April 2017 with close to 4,000 people boarding at the station each week day.
