Under the Northern Suburbs Transit System Project, Construction on the station was scheduled to commence on 16 November 1991, with completion expected by the end of December 1992. The Warwick Station being of the exact same design was scheduled for construction in synchronisation with the Warwick Station.
The station was to include a number of facilities, including a bus concourse to connect with feeder bus services, information booths and offices for railway staff, amenities and services, as well as access services for mobility impaired passengers in line with design requirements of the time. Further to this, pieces of the Passenger Information Network installed at the station included previously unseen electronic displays on the upper bus decks designed to provide drivers with information so they could connect with appointed trains or communicate with bus depot control in the event of delays. Passenger information systems across the network are currently being upgraded as part of the improvements being delivered under the New MetroRail Project.
The station also included a turnback siding. Even though the siding is in the middle of the Mitchell Freeway with no pedestrian access, Transperth were forced to fence the area in 2006 due to repeated graffiti attacks while trains were briefly in the siding. Car parking spaces were also included as part of the construction project, which included a significant number of on-grade parking bays on the eastern side of the station for commuter use.
The design of the station also allowed for the possible extension of the upper bus deck in a northern direction towards Whitfords Avenue. This extension would provide for five additional regular bus bays, as well as additional pedestrian access if required.
The most interesting part of the two stations was the upper bus deck. The deck was constructed of precast concrete that was formed off site, which was then transported to the site before being placed atop columns constructed as part of the stations foundations. Precast concrete flooring was then put in place, held in specially formed ridges running the length of the beams. This upper deck was the most expensive structural element of the station, and was the cause of significant attention and consideration as part of the design and construction process.
The new station was opened on 21 March 1993 for the commencement of regular passenger services, despite the station being officially opened on 20 December 1992 by the then Premier Dr. Carmen Lawrence.
