Shel­ter ex­ten­sion pro­tects pas­sen­gers

Wanneroo Times - - News -

PAS­SEN­GERS at Green­wood Sta­tion are bet­ter pro­tected from the weather af­ter the ex­ten­sion of the plat­form shel­ter.

The $1.8 mil­lion project ex­tended the shel­ter by 50 me­tres to cre­ate 60 per cent cov­er­age, as well as in­stalling more CCTV cam­eras and bet­ter light­ing.

One lane was closed on each side of the Mitchell Free­way while roof pan­els were in­stalled us­ing a crane dur­ing two early morn­ing op­er­a­tions.

As­sem­bly work was done off-site where pos­si­ble or com­pleted af­ter hours to min­imise the ef­fect on pas­sen­gers and traf­fic.

“Pas­sen­gers will no longer have to crowd at one end of the plat­form to shel­ter from the hot sun in sum­mer or the rain in win­ter,” Kings­ley MLA Jes­sica Sto­jkovski said.

“This im­prove­ment, along with the in­creases to the CCTV and bet­ter light­ing at the sta­tion, make trav­el­ling on pub­lic trans­port a safer and com­fort­able al­ter­na­tive to driv­ing.”
