Alliance sought for Bayswater Station upgrade
The Public Transport Authority is now seeking contractors to build the METRONET upgrade of Bayswater Station, which will form the vital rail junction of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, Forrestfield-Airport Link and the existing Midland Line.
Contractors are being sought to design and construct the Bayswater Station upgrade and associated works through a competitive alliance contract. A Request for Proposal (RFP) for the project was released to market today (April 11).
The successful bidder will be required to demonstrate its ability to design and construct the station and the bridge over the King William Street/Coode Street underpass while the Midland Line remains operational.
The alliance will also complete track, signalling, civil, drainage, and overhead line works along with building retaining walls, delivering communications and control systems, and public spaces.
The RFP submissions will also need to show how the parties will work around other major transport projects taking place around the Bayswater area, and deliver a value-for-money solution which minimises community impacts.
A successful alliance will also assist with work on the proposed Morley-Ellenbrook Line, by providing the connection between the Midland Line and the future rail project.
RFP applications close in May, with contract award and construction set to start by the end of the year.
