High Wycombe Station

Construction update

Construction of the permanent road network in and around High Wycombe Station commenced in early January. Some of the roadworks will be completed within the construction site boundary, however changes to the active road network are also required. 

The roadworks include:

  • upgrade of a section of Dundas Road (north and south of the station)
  • a new roundabout at the intersection of Dundas and Maida Vale roads
  • a new T-intersection along Maida Vale Road
  • a new section of road linking Ibis Place and Sultana Road West
  • access roads for buses to the station. 

View a map outlining external and internal roadworks.

The following road closure is currently in place:

  • Maida Vale Road between Dundas Road and Everitt Place. Access to homes and businesses will remain open to local traffic. Please follow traffic management signage in the area. 

While every effort is made to minimise disruption to residents, a range of earthmoving equipment has to be used, and construction noise and some vibration is expected. We apologise for any disruption caused.

With the station building construction and fit-out nearing completion, activity has moved to the forecourt where paving works and the construction of planter boxes are taking shape.

Revegetation has also started along the embankment between the platform and Dundas Road, with a colourful selection of native tube stock in the ground ready to flourish come spring.

Further north, at the corner of Dundas and Maida Vale roads, construction of the station's 1200-bay multi-deck car park has been completed.

High Wycombe Station

Located adjacent to Dundas Road, east of the Forrestfield freight marshalling yard and south of Maida Vale Road, High Wycombe Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth’s eastern suburbs and foothills.

Passengers will enter High Wycombe Station at an elevated arrival area with a clear view down to the 150m-long island platform below. Access to the platform will be via a SmartRider fare gate, with escalators, lifts and stairs taking passengers to the lower level to meet the train.

There will be facilities for passengers arriving at the station by bus, car, bicycle or foot, with eight active bus bays, parking for up to 1200 vehicles and safe cycle and pedestrian routes.

The new station will support neighbouring residential and business investment. DevelopmentWA is leading the planning framework for the area adjacent to the station through the METRONET East Redevelopment Scheme, which will pave the way for the precinct to be transformed into an activity centre and employment hub.
