GHD Woodhead was commissioned by the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia (PTA) to deliver masterplanning, design, documentation and administration services for upgrade works to the existing station, including a new bus interchange facilities platform and extended parking facilities.
A key urban design issue was access across Guildford Road to connect with the existing Old Perth Road mall. Access options including underpass, overpass and on grade crossing were developed through engagement with Westrail, Main Roads Western Australia and Bassendean Town Council.
Local pedestrian routes and bike routes were integrated with the new facility.
Town planning considerations, including public safety and security, were also addressed.
