Construction of the permanent road network in and around High Wycombe Station was completed in October, and line marking has recently been completed.
Streetscaping works (kerbs, bollards, paving, footpaths, irrigation, bike racks, garden beds, seating… you name it!) are in the final stage, and native trees are already standing tall across the precinct.
At the eastern end of site, demolition works are underway to remove the concrete base of the wastewater treatment plant that was used as part of tunnelling operations.
The station itself is undergoing commissioning woks.
After spending time underground between 2017 and 2020, one of the TBM cutterheads is now displayed near the 1200-bay multi-deck car park. The 70-tonne industrial sculpture recognises the monumental feat of building Western Australia’s longest tunnels.
Further east, pink galahs, red-tail cockatoos, and kangaroos are among the flora and fauna featured along the Maida Vale Road substation wall. The idea for the artwork stemmed from workshops with the local youth and was brought to life by artist Fieldey. Titled ‘Homecoming’, the design depicts a commuter’s journey home to the hills after spending the day in the city.
