Leake Street Underpass (from 2 July)

The Leake Street pedestrian underpass will be closed from 2 July for the duration of the school holidays while we build a new wider underpass. Pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to use the King William Street underpass.

Concreting works are continuing to build the new underpass.

Piling and earth works (from 4 July)

Drilling and excavating south of the rail line along Whatley Crescent between Frank Drago Reserve and west of Garratt Road.

Bayswater Station car park (ongoing)

Approximately 50 parking bays in the eastern section of the Bayswater Station car park on Railway Parade are temporarily closed to relocate site facilities. 

Additional parking bays have been allocated for Transperth passengers in the Halliday Park car park. 

Shared path detour (until late-2022)

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

Retaining wall (ongoing)

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

Excavation works along Railway Parade for another retaining wall. 

Midland Line Shutdown

The first half of the new Bayswater Station will open to passengers after a Midland Line closure from Friday 23 September – Sunday 16 October.

The 24-day shutdown is required to remove and replace about 1.8 km of track and other rail systems, as well as expanding the existing Leake Street pedestrian underpass while continuing work on the new Bayswater Bridge.

The shutdown will also have some impacts on the Airport Line, the Prospector, AvonLink and MerredinLink services, and the Indian Pacific train, with Transwa services to leave from Midland Station during the closure.
