While the extent and timing of construction activities will be confirmed as the project progresses, the following potential impacts are anticipated:
- Short term passenger disruptions due to temporary line and station closures, with replacement buses operating
- Road closures and detours
- Temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours while realigning the shared path
- Noise and vibration associated with construction activities. Some construction activity is expected to take place outside of standard hours.
Construction is due to begin late-2020.
All potential construction impacts will be clearly communicated to affected stakeholders as the project progresses.
Site Compound Establishment (October – Late 2021)
A project office in the Bayswater town centre will be opening. Evolve Bayswater locating the project team here will encourage support of local businesses.
A satellite compound will also be established at the western end of the Whatley Crescent car park, within the rail reserve.
Works will include the installation of several small demountable buildings and fencing for use by construction workers. For the safety of passengers and construction workers, sections of the Whatley Crescent passenger car park (city side) will be closed to enable the safe movement of vehicles to and from the location.
The compound will be accessed during the project’s approved working hours, Monday – Saturday 7am - 7pm. It may be used during after-hours works, with additional notification provided in advance of such works. The compound building will be orientated to minimise the impact on adjacent residents and printed mesh will be used to reduce the visual impact.
