Bayswater Community Zone
The construction of the Bayswater Junction, near Guildford Road, requires staged works within the railway reserve and along adjacent streets
Railway Parade site: A construction site has been established near the corner of Railway Parade and Bassendean Road, Bayswater. Facilities at the site include site offices, car parking and laydown areas. To allow safe egress to and from the site, a temporary closure of one lane along a section of Railway Parade will remain in place until late 2017.
A retaining wall, 500m long and up to 5m high, has been built adjacent to Railway Parade. The site has been backfilled ready for construction of the temporary Midland Line, to be completed by early 2018.
Whatley Crescent site: The current cycle path which links Guildford Road to Whatley Crescent traverses the Bayswater Junction construction site. With early works now underway, the path is being closed in stages from late August. Pedestrians have been moved to an existing path on the southern side of Whatley Crescent and cyclists moved onto the road, although they can use the existing footpath if required
Southern construction site: This is where the Bayswater Junction is being built. Work is currently underway to establish the site, including clearing, earthworks and creation of a site compound for the construction team.
