Edgewater multi-storey car park to be delivered $16m under budget
Company chosen to design and construct $29.5m facility
Number of bays at Edgewater will be boosted by 560
The State Government is delivering on a key election promise to increase parking at Edgewater train station by 560 bays.
Construction company Georgiou has been awarded a contract to build the car park, which will be delivered for $29.5 million.
Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the competitive nature of the market meant that $16 million would be saved.
"This announcement delivers on a significant election commitment," Mr Nalder said.
Construction will start early next year and it will be open by the end of 2016.
The Minister said the car park would help ease growing demand in the northern suburbs.
"Edgewater, Joondalup and surrounding suburbs have experienced incredible residential growth in recent years, thanks in part to the accessibility afforded by the Joondalup Line," he said.
"Since the 2008 State election, this Government has far exceeded its commitment to build 3,000 new bays across the Transperth network, with more than 5,000 bays already constructed."
The car park has been designed to maximise security, natural lighting and ventilation while providing shading and weather protection where possible. It will feature a lift, open staircase and open roof to ensure it blends in with surrounding buildings.
