Shelter Extension at Greenwood Station
Project Name: Shelter Extension at Greenwood Station
Client: Perth Transport Authority
Architect: MPS Architects
Project Value: $1,261,815
The upgrade of the Greenwood Station Shelter was constructed to improve the passengers' experience by increasing the covered area on platforms.
The project required some disruption of the Mitchell Freeway, as well as out of hours work. Where possible works was undertaken off-site and assembled on-site in order to minimise patron and traffic impacts.
The roof panels were installed using a crane in a series of lifts which took place in the early mornings, one lane was closed on each side of the Mitchell Freeway while the panels were lifted into position.
Construction of an extended shelter included:
- Documentation and design of the new shelter, with associated structural and electrical documentation.
- Installation of 1.8m temporary high fence on the platform, with bonding.
- Installation of temporary road barriers on the Southbound Mitchell Freeway side to allow access and egress to site.
- Removal of the two existing portable small shelters.
- Excavation of footings on the Down & Up Main platforms.
- Pouring of concrete to the footings on the Down & Up Main platforms
- Fabrication of a modular vandal proof shelter offsite with Colorbond roof sheeting.
- Transport and installation of structural shelter columns and shelter segments during approved rail isolations.
- Fitoff of new electrical CCTV, lighting and DAV’s cameras.
- Repaving of the Up & Down main.
