Residents in Lakelands, Madora Bay and surrounds will have a new travel option to choose from with the newest Mandurah Line station being built in Lakelands.
Located on the Mandurah Line between Warnbro and Mandurah stations, which are 23 kilometres apart, Lakelands Station will help ease the growing demand for public transport in the southern suburbs by reducing the need to travel significant distances to access train services.
More than 2,300 passengers are expected to board at Lakelands Station each day in 2023, growing to 3,500 in 2031.
The project will be jointly funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments, with 80 per cent funding coming from the Commonwealth.
Work is expected to begin in 2021.
