Construction of the new METRONET Bayswater Station in Western Australia is now complete, with full services set to get underway later this year, making it the busiest station outside of the CBD.

The METRONET New Bayswater Station will become the meeting point for three separate train lines. The station is already servicing the Midland and Airport Lines and clears the way for the METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line to commence services in late 2024.

The elevated four-platform station also includes a new bus interchange, car park, bike parking and 10 new retail spaces around the base of the station.

The southern half of the station was completed and opened in October last year, while works have been continued on the northern half of the station over the past six months.

With major works wrapping up in recent weeks, attention has turned to landscaping around the station with more than 170 trees being planted, as well as around 16,000 plants and shrubs in 4300 square metres of new garden beds.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti thanked local businesses and locals for their patience throughout the delivery of major works.

“The Bayswater town centre is completely unrecognisable to what it was before, with an elevated four-platform station replacing what was effectively a shed at the old station,” Saffioti said. “There have been a lot of big milestones along the way, none more so than the demolition of the old Bayswater Bridge, which garnered a huge amount of community attention.

“We are now in the process of undertaking landscaping and installation of public art pieces, and one of those pieces will include a segment of the old bridge.

Works on the new station commenced in late 2020.
