The preferred proponent to construct METRONET's Lakelands Station has been revealed with construction on schedule to start next year.
ADCO Constructions will design and build the train station, including an entry building with a pedestrian overpass connecting the train platforms, bus interchange, 400-bay car park and associated infrastructure.
The contract will be awarded in early 2021 with construction supporting more than 200 jobs.
Lakelands Station is expected to be operational in 2023.
Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the Morrison Government's multi-billion-dollar investment in METRONET was transforming Perth's public transport network.
Canning MP Andrew Hastie said it was a significant step forward for the community.
"It's very exciting to see the Lakelands Train Station - which is a long-held dream for many in the north Mandurah community - a step closer to becoming reality," he said.
"Many residents have told me how they chose to make Lakelands their home in part because the development would include a local train station. For some, that was 10 years ago.
"Having provided 80 per cent of funding, the Morrison government has made sure that promise is kept."
State member for Mandurah David Templeman said his electorate has been waiting for this train station for a long time and it would help change the way residents travel.
"With 23km of uninterrupted track between Warnbro and Mandurah stations, Lakelands will provide residents in Mandurah's northern suburbs with a new train station right on their doorstep," he said.
Lakelands Station will be built 7km north of Mandurah Station with car park access off Ashwood Parkway and bus access from Lake Valley Drive.
It will service the growing suburbs of Lakelands, Madora Bay, Meadow Springs and their surrounds.
The new station is forecast to generate about 2300 daily boardings, increasing to about 3500 by 2031.
