GHD Woodhead was engaged by the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia (PTA) to design Bull Creek Station, one of three stations for the Package D component of the South West Metropolitan Rail extension.
The station comprises five key infrastructure elements including bus interchange, railway station, pedestrian footbridge, park‘n’ride and kiss‘n’ride facilities. The station includes parking for 628 cars to meet forecast demand. The building is supported over a 150 m platform located between the two carriageways of the Kwinana Freeway.
Pedestrians can access the station through the bus interchange from the western car park, and pedestrian and cycle links to the surrounding areas via the vertical circulation core.
The station platform building form is derived from the functional and spatial requirements. The rectangular roofed portal frames enclose the train platform together with a linear highlight roof reflecting the transition from concourse level to platform level.
