Works update

Following completion of concrete pours for the dive structure, formwork is being installed at the tunnel portal in preparation for the concrete walls to be poured. Several pours are scheduled to occur to construct the walls for the lift shafts up to mezzanine level.

Two parallel retaining walls are currently being constructed at the western end of the site. One wall will retain vegetation and the other will separate the rail reserve from the principal shared path (PSP). 

Along Whatley Crescent, the first section of the noise wall has been installed and painted in the community-chosen three-colour palette.

Backfilling of the Midland Line overpass retaining wall is ongoing and the first section of the transition slab is scheduled to be poured within the coming weeks.

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.
