Works update

At the portal building, located at the entry/exit of the tunnel, steel fixing and formwork for the lift shaft between the ground and mezzanine levels is now complete. Concrete will be poured shortly to form the last section of the shaft walls.

At the western end of the site, the final section of the principal shared path (PSP) retaining wall will be poured this month. Once complete, the wall will measure 232 metres.

All handrails along the retaining wall have now been installed. Backfilling and compaction works are currently in progress along the entire path alignment.

Along Whatley Crescent, all sections of the noise wall have been installed and some have already been painted in the community-chosen three-colour palette.

Bayswater Junction

Bayswater Junction refers to the area of rail reserve between Railway Parade and Whatley Crescent (from Cobden Street to Guildford Road) where the Forrestfield Line spurs from the Midland Line and trains will enter/exit the two twin-bored tunnels.

Bayswater Junction includes:

  • Dive structure (an underground, open-air structure which leads towards the tunnel portal),
  • Rail overpass (located above the dive structure, where trains travelling on the Midland Line will cross the Forrestfield Line),
  • Tunnel portal (underground structure where trains travelling on the Forrestfield Line will enter/exit the tunnels),
  • Supporting infrastructure (tunnel portal building).

Bayswater Station

Bayswater Station will become a major transport hub with the Forrestfield-Airport Link and the proposed Morley-Ellenbrook Line connecting to the Transperth network here.

To reflect its importance as an interchange station and heart of the Bayswater town centre, the station will undergo a major upgrade. Also additional rail infrastructure will be built between Bayswater and Meltham stations. 

The METRONET team and the City of Bayswater are working together to create a precinct and station upgrade that provides the best outcomes for the network and local community.
