Principal shared path detour (ongoing)
A principal shared path (PSP) detour will be in place along Whatley Crescent, between Slade and Leake streets.
Part of the new detour includes crossing at the station’s level-crossing.
To allow safe crossing, the traffic lights at the King William Street and Whatley Crescent intersection will prioritise pedestrians and cyclists.
Pedestrians can continue to use the footpath along Whatley Crescent for access to local businesses.
Piling and earthworks (June to mid-August 2021)
Deep drilling into the ground will occur east of King William Street to create a strong foundation for the new Bayswater Station bridges.
Some construction noise and vibrations are likely and works will follow an approved noise and vibration management plan with monitors in place to ensure compliance.
Utility services works (ongoing)
To enable construction of the new station several major utility services (telecommunications, electricity and sewerage) are being relocated.
This may include works by service providers in local streets. All works will follow approved Traffic Management Plans. To minimise the impact on local residents, the majority of works will be completed during the day. If your home services are impacted, you will be notified in advance with the time and date of the service disruption.
Residents will be notified in advance of any planned after-hours works.
Piling and excavation (from 15 March 2021)
We’re installing sheet piles and permanent bored piles. Sheet piling involves the installation of temporary metal barriers in the ground to protect the existing station and rail infrastructure while the surrounding ground level is excavated and lowered. Permanent piling involves deep drilling into the ground to create strong foundations for the new station bridges. We’re using a 30 metre high piling rig and crane as we drill around 180 piles to a depth of 21 metres.
Residents and businesses may be impacted by vibration, noise and dust. Approved noise and vibration management plans are in place and monitors have been set around the worksite to ensure we comply with standards. Watercarts will be used for dust suppression.
