TRAFFIC on the Kwinana Freeway should remain normal in the lead up to the opening of the Aubin Grove train station.

There were major road closures and services were delayed on the Mandurah rail line midway through last year to accommodate work.

But with the station due to open within months, a spokesman for the Public Transport Authority (PTA) said the lead-up to the unveiling should not affect motorists or public transport users.

“There are no further major freeway or rail line disruptions anticipated,” he said.

“The PTA would like to thank local residents and train passengers who may have been impacted by works for their patience and support.”

An announcement about the opening date for the station, which is part of a $120m package that included the widening of the Russell Road bridge, is expected within the coming weeks.

“Works are still taking place on site, including ticketing facilities, passenger information systems, internal fit-outs, signalling and other communications systems,” the spokesman said.
