Works to upgrade the principal shared path (PSP) at Bayswater Station will begin in March, with the project's tender to be awarded in coming weeks. The $1.5 million upgrade will see the construction of a new section of PSP to connect the existing pathway at either end of the station. The project will also include extending the PSP over the existing underpass.
When completed, the PSP connection will greatly improve safety and accessibility at the station by separating bicycle traffic from car and pedestrian traffic within the southern car park.
Forward works began in 2016 and included changing the alignment of the car bays and changes to access/egress. Now that this work is complete, vehicles are only able to enter the car park from the west and exit from the east.
The number of parking bays available is currently reduced due to the presence of water-filled barriers, which provide a safe pathway for cyclists through the carpark (see below map). Once the PSP upgrade is complete these bays will be reinstated and there will be no need for cyclists to enter the car park.
As with the initial car park upgrade works, construction will be staged to reduce the number of bays impacted during works.
