Public Transport Authority

Landscape Planners has provided landscape architecture services for the Public Transport Authority since 1995, developing new rail corridors and station precincts as the Perth urban rail network has expanded. During this period we have gained an extensive knowledge of the operating constraints, safety and maintenance environments specific to landscape architecture surrounding rail infrastructure. Several projects include;

Forrestfield Airport Link Review 

Landscape Planners are undertaking the independent review roll for landscape and stations for the Forrestfield Airport Link (FAL) Project. The FAL Project involves is a new rail line from Bayswater Station with tunnel rail to three new stations, Redcliffe Station (west of the domestic terminal), Airport Central (international terminal) and terminating at Forrestfield Station. Scope requires the review of all landscape and urban design packages for the Public Transport Authority.

Aubin Grove Station 

Landscape Planners completed the landscape architectural consultancy for the new station at Aubin Grove for Public Transport Authority. The station is a central median within the Kwinana Freeway with overpasses to carparks located East and West of the freeway adjacent to Russell Road, and a busway located centrally within the western carpark, the station has the largest Park and Ride within the metropolitan rail network. Constraints for the project involved location of the carpark within the existing western power easement, and the difficulties associated with providing landscape amenity within these constraints.The project was sensitive within the local community with additional amenity provided to local street scapes. The project was an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) with the Georgiou Group, and was completed in 2017.

Butler Station

Butler Station is a new station constructed in 2014, located at the northern end of the Joondalup Line extension. The station was constructed on a greenfield site adjacent within the future Butler town center. Landscape Planners completed the landscape architectural consultancy for the project which included an eastern carpark with a Drop off and Ride, and a western busway. The station is located in cut with marginal platforms so works included extensive revegetation planting to the adjacent batters utilising local flowering species.

Claisebrook Stowe Roads

Claisebrook Stowe Road project involved the development of storage and cleaning areas for carriages, adjacent to the Claisebrook Depot and the residential area of East Perth. Landscape Planners was part of a multidisciplinary consultancy team that undertook community consultation and design of a noisewall and landscape buffer for the high density housing area adjacent to the stowe yards.

Perth To Mandurah Line

The Perth to Mandurah Rail line was completed in 2007 and involved the creation of a new rail line between Perth and Mandurah with 10 new stations. Landscape Planners undertook the landscape and irrigation consultancy for 9 of the stations on the new line, which were split into 3 design packages;
