Funding for the VPCLXR project and associated works 

The State and Federal Governments have both committed a total of $87.5 million to the VPCLXR Project. As a result of the funding, the project will further work on the removal of six-level crossings.

Furthermore, the funding will include the construction of a dedicated city-bound bus lane along Shepperton Road. Additionally, the funding will include the delivery of a specialized intelligent transport system infrastructure that features variable message signs as well as CCTV surveillance.

Moreover, the project will also construct five brands and new elevated stations. 100% of the water, the Transport Minister, revealed, used for cleaning the beams goes through a recycling process. In an effort to conserve the environment, no concrete waste is left on site. 

Remaks on the project

While commenting on the project, WA Transport Minister explained that the beams are pivotal in the transformation of the Armadale Line.

Rita Saffioti further added that the project will also elevate the rail network within the area. As a result, the region will observe the opening of new public spaces that will serve the community in various ways.
