Free community event to celebrate Bayswater Station

With works on the New Bayswater Station now in the final stages, the Government has today announced a free community event will be held on Sunday April 21 to celebrate completion of the major project.

Landscaping around the station is now underway, and final rail alignment on the new northern platforms is taking place during a 10-day shut to the Airport and Midland Lines commencing on Thursday March 28.

Landscaping around the station will include the installation of more than 170 trees, and around 16,000 plants and shrubs in 4,300 square metres of new garden beds.

The New Bayswater Station project has been in the delivery phase for several years, with the southern platforms opening to passengers in October last year.

Bayswater will be the biggest train station in Perth outside of the CBD and will eventually become the meeting point for three separate train lines when the Morley-Ellenbrook Line opens.

The new station includes four elevated platforms, bicycle shelter and parking, new bus stands and 10 new retail spaces around the base of the station.

An expression of interest process was recently undertaken for the retail spaces and assessment of submissions and proposals is currently underway.

Community art pieces will also be installed over the coming months, including one that pays homage to the old Bayswater Bridge.

The community event on Sunday April 21 will be held between 11am and 3pm and will include food trucks, live music, entertainment, rides and activities for kids and much more.

Road closures around the station will be in place, ensuring people can move safely and freely during the event.
