METRONET Bayswater Station section now open

The Western Australian Government has provided an Infrastructure Pipeline to outline current and future infrastructure projects.

Southern platforms on the new METRONET Bayswater Station in Western Australia are now open to the public, as works continue on the northern half of the station.

The partial opening has seen the southern platforms open to commuters, who can now access the station via the entry building on either side of Coode Street. Services have resumed on the Midland and Airport lines as a result.

The new Whatley Crescent extension road underneath the new station, and the upgraded shared path between Meltham and Bayswater Stations, are also now open. The opening of the new station comes after the old station and Bayswater Bridge were demolished in April.

Once the northern half of the station is completed, the new Bayswater Station will become a key connection point for the Midland, Airport and new METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook lines.

It will improve connectivity with the Midland Line, Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley-Ellenbrook Line connections providing a new level of public transport service to Perth’s north-eastern suburbs.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti thanked the community for their patience throughout construction.

“The Bayswater Station will be the biggest station outside of the CBD, becoming a key connection point for the Midland, Airport and new METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook lines,” she said.

Maylands MLA Lisa Baker said the station would provide new opportunities for local businesses in the local community.

“The METRONET new Bayswater Station will be the only station outside of the CBD to service three separate train lines which will see this part of our community become a thriving hub in the years ahead,” Baker said.
