Works update

Construction of the permanent road network in and around High Wycombe Station commenced in early January. Some of the roadworks will be completed within the construction site boundary, however changes to the active road network are also required. 

The roadworks, which will take about five months to complete, will include:

  • upgrade of a section of Dundas Road (north and south of the station)
  • a new roundabout at the intersection of Dundas and Maida Vale roads
  • a new T-intersection along Maida Vale Road
  • a new section of road linking Ibis Place and Sultana Road West
  • access roads for buses to the station. 

View a map outlining external and internal roadworks.

Starting Tuesday February 9 the following road closures will be in place:

  • Dundas Road between Sorensen Road and the southern end of the new Dundas Road alignment (near Little Loads).
  • Maida Vale Road between Dundas Road and Everitt Place.

Access to homes and businesses will remain open to local traffic. All other road users please use the below outlined detours:

  • travelling north: detour via Berkshire, Milner, Maida Vale, Newburn and Sorenson roads.
  • travelling south: detour via Sorenson, Newburn, Maida Vale, Milner and Berkshire roads.

While every effort will be made to minimise disruption to residents, a range of earthmoving equipment will be used, and construction noise and some vibration is expected. We apologise for any disruption caused.

With 626 solar panels installed and an area of more than 1300 square metres covered, it's time to tick off another big job at High Wycombe Station. The sea of blue complements the rusty red colours of the station's main roof, while the 275kW system is designed to generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 50-60 households.

Within the station buildings finishing touches are the current focus, ranging from installation of sanitary ware, lights, handrails and balustrades, to fitting internal doors.

One level down tiling of the station platform is underway, with more than half of the grey terrazzo tiles already installed.

At the northern end of the site, the multi-deck car park has reached a new level – level two that is – with only two quadrants of the topping slab left to be poured. Installation of the façade cladding is also underway at the western end of the structure.

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.
