Brookfield Multiplex and BG&E have been selected to complete the construction of the new underground station to replace the Wellington Street Bus Station, under an alliance with the Public Transport Authority (PTA). This part of the $249 million bus project is part of the larger Perth City Link project. Constructive Media is proud to have assisted with presentation materials for the tender of this project, having produced an animated video depicting deconstruction and construction phases.
The consortium – operating as City Busport Alliance – will commence work on the new underground bus station from early next year (2014), with the new underground bus station to expected to be completed by mid 2016.
Perth City Link project is a $4 billion development which will re-connect the CBD with the Northbridge entertainment precinct for the first time in a century, as well as injecting a mix of transit, commercial, residential and retail areas that will stretch over 13.5 hectares.
The new bus station – which will comprise a 195 metre long underground bus loop and passenger lounge, located between Wellington and Roe Streets – is part of the second stage of works at the Perth City Link project. The new terminal will ultimately merge with an extensive network of bus, rail and pedestrian upgrades being undertaken to ensure seamless connectivity across the site to cater for future population growth.
