In time for the rainy months the crew has finished installing the station roof skylights. Designed to minimise energy use for lighting and assist patrons with wayfinding, the skylights align with the project's sustainability vision. The distinctive station roof will be visible from surrounding areas and clearly identify the entry point to the station.
The two lift shafts have also had glazing installed, and the assembly of the lift cabins is complete. Vertical transport in general played a big role in recent weeks, with the escalator fit-out also finalised.
Outside the station, steel frames for the bus stop canopies have been placed and roof panels installed.
At the eastern end of site, the slurry treatment plant, used to process the soil excavated by the two tunnel boring machines, has been disassembled and removed from site.
The construction of the multi-deck car park is in full swing, with more than 100 columns to support the first level cast. Workers are now erecting the structure's tilt-up panels, weighing in at more than 10 tonnes each.
Once complete the three-level building will accommodate 1200 vehicles and more than 50 motorcycle bays. Parking will be available to Transperth patrons at a cost of two dollars per 24-hour period.
At the northern end of site, the 135kv traction power substation has been constructed and is undergoing testing. The traction power system supplies electric power to the suburban railway network, and the High Wycombe substation will house a single traction transformer. From here, electricity will be fed to the overhead line system.
