Phasing of works

With the project due for completion in line with the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, the following phasing of works is planned for 2023 and 2024.

Due to the complex nature of road and rail works in the area, the sequence of works is subject to change.

Phase 1

Major road works took place on Coode–King William Street to raise the road levels, install drainage for future flood mitigation and tie into the new Whatley Crescent extension road.

Works to build the northern bridges continued with columns, headstocks and beams installed during this phase.

The southern station building and platforms were built with fit-out of the escalators, stairs, lifts and passenger amenities. 

Works on the Morley-Ellenbrook Line viaduct connection progressed with columns, headstocks and beam installation. 

Bayswater Station reopened on 8 October, along with the new Whatley Crescent extension road.  

Phase 2

Bayswater Station’s southern platforms are now operational and works continue on the northern station building and platforms. The station car park is also being built.

Works to install an underground storm water tank beneath Halliday Park – to mitigate future flooding – will begin in late October. These works have been planned in consultation with Bayswater Lacrosse Club to occur outside of the sports season.

Works will not impact the playground, car park, community garden, archery area or war memorial, and the park will be reinstated after use.

Drainage works are also progressing on Rose Avenue, the bus link area and Coode Street where essential road works also continue.  

The viaduct construction for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line connection continues with a focus on concrete works.

Phase 3

The final phase of work occurs throughout 2024. 

Landscaping, public art installation and civic works around the station – including footpaths and finishing touches on the public spaces are taking place.

The northern station building and platforms are being finalised.

Works for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line continue until late-2024.
