Subiaco Rail Station

This project commenced as a masterplan for the Subiaco Redevelopment Area and centred around a new underground railway station and including commercial, retail and residential uses. The development realised the creation of a vibrant new precinct focussed around the station and station square. Further development has seen the completion of the square through the construction of a mixed use built wall brining a new energy from residential and shopping activity.

A new partially underground railway station in the heart of the Subiaco Redevelopment Authority area at the north end of Rokeby Road in Subiaco. The new station replaces the existing above ground station enabling the land above to be redeveloped into a diverse mixed use precinct containing Commercial, Retail, Short Stay Accommodation and Residential uses surrounding a new urban square. Extensive consultation was undertaken with the Disability Services Commission to ensure access was available to all patrons. The marginal platforms are accessed by stair, lift and escalator at the western end from a bridge aligning with Rokeby Road. The western end of the station is elliptical in plan form and covered with a series of gull wing roof forms. A wall of glass provides weather protection at low level to the platforms below. At the eastern end of the station a stair descends from the public square onto an open platform.

The station has been sized to accommodate 4 car sets with access suitable to disperse the winter football crowds arriving and departing from games at the nearby Subiaco football oval as well as serving the Subiaco transit patrons.

JCY provided the design for the Principal to procure a ‘Document and Construct’ tender and the provided design review advice to the Principal during the Construction Phase.
