CPB Contractors’ NEWest Alliance team, currently delivering the METRONET Thornlie-Cockburn Link (TCL) Project in Perth, Western Australia, is celebrating a construction milestone with all entry building foundations for the new Ranford Road Station now complete.
The entry building will consist of public toilets, a bicycle store and general operational equipment rooms for the day-to-day running of the station. The entry building foundation will also facilitate the covered walkway connected directly to the overpass bridge for access to the platforms.
CPB Contractors’ Alliance Director Rohan O’Grady said the milestone comes just weeks after a successful line switch on the project.
“Up until now, our works have focused on switching over the Arc freight line, however the pouring of the first entry foundation signifies the next stage of the project,” he explains.
“With the structural steel being erected over the coming weeks and bus interchange works commencing, our team will increase and the community will be able to see the project start to come out of the ground.”
CPB Contractors, as part of the NEWest Alliance, is delivering the Yanchep Rail Extension (YRE) and the TCL components of Perth’s METRONET. YRE extends the Joondalup line north from Butler to Yanchep and involves the construction of three new stations to support the area’s growing population. TCL connects the Mandurah and Armadale lines and involves the construction of two new stations to provide Perth’s first cross line connection and improved public transport services to the city’s southern suburbs.
