Bayswater Community Zone
Bayswater Junction refers to the tunnel portal (also known as a dive structure) in the road reserve near Tonkin Highway, just west of Guildford Road. This will provide the entry for trains to the tunnels, starting their underground journey to Forrestfield.
Two TBMs will begin tunnelling two months apart at Forrestfield from mid-2017, breaking through the tunnel portal at Bayswater in mid-2019.
A lot of activity is planned within the Bayswater area over the next few years - all works are within the rail reserve.
The existing Midland Line will be moved temporarily further north (toward Railway Parade) for approximately two years to create space for the new Forrestfield tracks to be added. A new Midland Line will then be built in a ‘crossover’ of the Forrestfield Line.
A construction site has been established near the corner of Railway Parade and Bassendean Road, Bayswater. Facilities at the site include fencing, site buildings, car parking and laydown areas. To allow safe egress to and from the site, there will be a temporary closure of one lane along a section of Railway Parade until late 2017.
