Through rigorous fit-for-purpose and whole-of-life cost analysis, the design solution for the stop architecture was a modular one. Each stop comprises systems and elements that can be easily added to, allowing for rapid expansion for increased future demand. Stop components can also be quickly and easily repaired or replaced, lowering long-term maintenance costs. This modular kit-of-parts approach enabled a low-impact delivery by reducing on-site construction; achieving consistent high quality finishes and a whole of journey aesthetic solution.
