New Bayswater Station open for business
The new Bayswater Station has opened to the public for the first time today, with services resuming on the Midland and Airport lines.
The partial opening has seen the southern platforms open to commuters, who can now access the station via the entry building on either side of Coode Street. Access to the platforms is available via a lift, escalator and stairs.
Major works are continuing on the northern half of the station, which will service the Morley-Ellenbrook Line.
The opening of the new station comes after the old station and Bayswater Bridge were demolished in April.
The new Whatley Crescent extension road underneath the new station, and the upgraded shared path between Meltham and Bayswater Stations, have also opened today.
The new road and shared paths will provide the community with upgraded links and access to the station and surrounding Bayswater businesses.
Once completed, the new Bayswater Station will become a key connection point for the Midland, Airport and new Morley-Ellenbrook lines, and will feature four platforms, bicycle shelter and parking and 10 new retail spaces around the base of the station.
The Government will work with the local community and businesses to activate and utilise the new retail spaces.
Bus routes diverted while the station was being upgraded have now returned to their original alignment, including the CircleRoute (999, 998) and Route 48 bus services. More information is available on the Transperth website.
