THE $29.5 million multi-storey carpark at Edgewater train station is on track for completion by the end of the year.
Construction of the 1450-bay carpark started earlier this year and is about 70 per cent complete.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said when the carpark 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,” he said.
“The new car park at Edgewater will create 560 new car bays for commuters to use and with more than 1500 passenger boardings at the station each weekday, the extra infrastructure is expected to be in demand.”
Construction of an access ramp, external drainage and other civil works are 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.
