The Karnup Train station was promised at the 2017 election but delayed when the Morrison Federal Government insisted the Lakelands station be built first.
In a first for Western Australia, the State Government is inviting proposals to transform the site of the proposed METRONET Karnup Train Station in the City of Rockingham into a thriving community hub.
The Karnup Station Precinct Problem and Opportunity Statement has been released, seeking feedback from the market interested in constructing a new passenger train station, and transit-oriented community and precinct in one of the State's highest growing suburbs.
The opportunity will integrate high-frequency public transport with approximately 35 hectares of underutilised land perfect for new homes, community facilities and public open space.
The statement is being released under the Market-led Proposals policy which has been updated to further clarify the evaluation process for Problem and Opportunity Statements.
Proposals will need to consider the unique environmental characteristics of the precinct including fauna and flora and incorporate water sensitive design initiatives.
