Cooper and Oxley has been appointed by the state government to build a $22 million Park ‘n’ Ride train station at Butler.
“The Butler extension will provide a valuable transport service to the rapidly-growing northern communities, and will also ease congestion on the road network,” Transport Minister Troy Buswell said.
“We expect more than 2,000 passengers to board at the station each week day. The new Butler station will be located north of the future Butler Boulevard.
“Following a comprehensive tender and selection process, I am pleased this important project will be done by a Western Australian company with more than 60 years experience in the building and construction industry.”
Forward works for the station have been completed, and construction will kick off before the end of the month.
The new station has been designed by Coniglio Ainsworth Architects.
