  • New railway station on the Mandurah Line complete
  • Significant boost to Perth’s southern corridor, creating new jobs for Western Australians
  • Aubin Grove Railway Station is a 22-23 minute journey from Perth

First train stopped at the $72 Million Aubin Grove Railway Station at 10.56 am today (April 23).

There are expected to be about 3,900 boardings each day at the new station, located between the Cockburn Central and Kwinana stations on the Mandurah Line.

“Aubin Grove Station was part of Labor’s long-term vision for the Mandurah Line.” Premier Mark McGowan said.

“At the time the Labor Government built the Mandurah Line we made an allowance for this station to be built as population growth increased demand.”

Aubin Grove Railway Station, made from locally fabricated steel, also features:

  • 2,000 parking bays,
  • 6 bus feeder services for local residents,
  • Bike facilities,
  • Kiosk,
  • Toilets,
  • Lifts,
  • Stairs and escalators.

Combined cost of the Aubin Grove road and rail project is $125 Million, including $20 Million in Federal funding for the Russell Road upgrade.

“I like to acknowledge the previous government and former Premier Colin Barnett’s commitment to this project and for following through with its delivery.” Premier McGowan said.

Two three-car train sets have been delivered as part of the project and are already operating on the Transperth network.

Road and rail works were delivered by Georgiou, with the road component of the project completed in December 2016.

“New Aubin Grove Railway Station was built while the Mandurah Line was largely still operational.” Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said.

“This project represents a feat of engineering, with the station largely constructed off-site and then sections craned into place over the last 18 months.”

Opening of the station has created

  • 17 full-time equivalent jobs,
  • 4 passenger ticketing assistants,
  • 9 transit officers,
  • 4 railcar drivers.

About 100 local jobs were created during the construction phase.
