Works

Standard work hours are Monday to Saturday, 7am-7pm, and any out of hours works are indicated below. All works will follow approved noise and traffic management plans, and every effort will be made to minimise impacts. For questions about project works, please email info@metronet.wa.gov.au or call 9326 3666.


Leake Street Underpass temporary closure (17 – 28 January)

The Leake Street Underpass will be temporarily closed for works on a new temporary ramp on the southern side of the underpass. Pedestrians will be able to cross under the Bayswater Bridge (King William Street-Coode Street).

Residents and businesses may be impacted by vibration, noise and dust.


Night Works (6-13 February)

Relocating rail signalling and communication infrastructure to build a new turnback. Works will be complete close to the railway at night while trains are not running.

Works will occur from 8pm-4am between Bayswater and Meltham stations. 


Bridge Beams (25-28 February)

Transporting and installing four bridge beams as part of the new Bayswater Station Bridge. Work will be completed at night when road traffic volume is low and when trains are not running.

Traffic management will be in place, and Midland Line services will be cancelled to facilitate these works. Please visit Transperth for more information.


Shared path detour (until mid-2023)

A shared path detour is in effect along Railway Parade, between Hotham and Coode streets while a new shared path is built.

 


Earth works, piling and structural works (ongoing)

A permanent retaining wall will be built along Whatley Crescent, east of King William Street.

Temporary fencing, existing roadway, footpath and services will need to be removed. Some existing footpath will also need to be narrowed. The use of a structural piling rig is required, along with excavation and compaction works.

Once complete, the footpath will be reinstated with new landscaping to follow.


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 out of 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 30m high piling rig and crane as we drill around 180 piles to a depth of 21m.

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.


Tonkin Gap Project and Associated Works (From January 2021)

As part of the rail-enabling works for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line Main Roads WA will continue to work in the median of Tonkin Highway from Marshall Road to Collier Road.

More information on upcoming works and out of hours works can be found on the Main Roads website.
