High Wycombe Station

Construction update

Construction of the permanent road network in and around High Wycombe Station was completed in October, and line marking has recently been completed. 

Streetscaping works (kerbs, bollards, paving, footpaths, irrigation, bike racks, garden beds, seating… you name it!) are in the final stage, and native trees are already standing tall across the precinct.

At the eastern end of site, demolition works are underway to remove the concrete base of the wastewater treatment plant that was used as part of tunnelling operations.

The station itself is undergoing commissioning works.

After spending time underground between 2017 and 2020, one of the TBM cutterheads is now displayed near the 1200-bay multi-deck car park. The 70-tonne industrial sculpture recognises the monumental feat of building Western Australia’s longest tunnels.

Further east, pink galahs, red-tail cockatoos, and kangaroos are among the flora and fauna featured along the Maida Vale Road substation wall. The idea for the artwork stemmed from workshops with the local youth and was brought to life by artist Fieldey. Titled ‘Homecoming’, the design depicts a commuter’s journey home to the hills after spending the day in the city.

High Wycombe Station

Located adjacent to Dundas Road, east of the Forrestfield freight marshalling yard and south of Maida Vale Road, High Wycombe Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth’s eastern suburbs and foothills.

Passengers will enter High Wycombe Station at an elevated arrival area with a clear view down to the 150m-long island platform below. Access to the platform will be via a SmartRider fare gate, with escalators, lifts and stairs taking passengers to the lower level to meet the train.

There will be facilities for passengers arriving at the station by bus, car, bicycle or foot, with eight active bus bays, parking for up to 1200 vehicles and safe cycle and pedestrian routes.

The new station will support neighbouring residential and business investment. DevelopmentWA is leading the planning framework for the area adjacent to the station through the METRONET East Redevelopment Scheme, which will pave the way for the precinct to be transformed into an activity centre and employment hub.
