Im­proved bus­port de­sign ap­proved

Guardian Express - - NEWS - Jes­sica War­riner

A $122 mil­lion El­iz­a­beth Quay bus­port project has been ap­proved by the Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel.

Pre­vi­ously la­belled by the Of­fice of the Gov­ern­ment Ar­chi­tect (OGA) as “unin­spir­ing”, the bus sta­tion re­fur­bish­ment and pro­posed eight-storey of­fice build­ing were unan­i­mously given the green light at a meet­ing last month.

It was de­ferred in Oc­to­ber to al­low more dis­cus­sion about the site be­tween the rel­e­vant agen­cies.

The project will be fully funded by Brook­field, which holds a lease over the area un­til 2103.

Ap­pli­cant Peter Simp­son of PTS Town Plan­ning said there had been a good out­come for the project.

“We went through the process of quite a few meet­ings with the City of Perth, OGA and the Pub­lic Trans­port Au­thor­ity,” he said.

Mr Simp­son said ma­jor changes in­cluded de­tails about land­scape plan­ning, the colours and fin­ishes, and four main ac­cess points to the bus sta­tion lobby.

Gov­ern­ment ar­chi­tect Ge­off Warn said the de­sign had no­tably im­proved.
