Traffic signalling changes
Whatley Crescent and King William intersection
Due to the newly opened Principal Shared Path detour and construction works, the timing and sequencing of traffic signals at this intersection have changed.
This has significantly reduced the traffic handling capacity of the intersection and has increased congestion. Road users are experiencing delays while travelling through the area, and you may need to allow additional time or seek an alternative route where possible.
Changes to the overall road network as part of the new Bayswater Station project aim to make the town centre more pedestrian friendly, which aligns with the City of Bayswater vision for the area.
Permanent closure of Whatley Crescent (mid-2021)
Whatley Crescent between King William and Hamilton streets will permanently close to vehicles but remain open for pedestrians and cyclists.
This section of road is closing to allow for the realignment of Whatley Crescent and Beechboro Road South. The new, lowered road configuration will open in 2022, creating a direct connection between the north and south of the station.
Once closed, access to Whatley Crescent residences east of Hamilton Street will be via Olfe Street, Slade Street, Anzac Street and Newton Street. The principal shared path (PSP) detour and pedestrian access will be available for the duration of these works.
Changes to Bus Route 48 (from 3 January 2021)
From 3 January, a small number of Route 48 bus trips from Bayswater Station to Morley Bus Station will be deviated due to road closures associated with Bayswater Station Upgrade works.
This deviation affects buses departing Bayswater Station, Monday to Friday at
To minimise traffic disruption, certain trips will undertake a short deviation through Bayswater town centre: from Railway Parade, the bus will turn left onto Coode Street, then right onto Whatley Crescent before looping back towards Coode Street via Veitch, Murray and King William Streets.
Services will return to normal once the upgraded bus facilities are constructed as part of the project.
