State Government Infrastructure Projects

A number of State government road and rail projects are in the planning stage, with new train stations scheduled for construction in Bayswater, Morley and Noranda as part of the Metronet project.

Main Roads have also planned improvements to the Tonkin Highway corridor in an effort to reduce travel times and improve the connectivity of the State’s road network.

While these projects are undertaken by the State, it is critical there is an appropriate level of involvement by the City to ensure the best outcomes are achieved. The City will continue to advocate on behalf of its community to ensure decisions made at a State level consider the local context.

Tonkin Gap Project and Associated Works

The Tonkin Gap Project is part of a suite of improvements to transform the Tonkin Highway corridor, providing a high standard north-south transport link from Muchea down to Mundijong. These improvements will alleviate pressure on the transport network, reduce travel times and improve safety and connectivity.

Within the City of Bayswater, it will involve:

  • Widening Tonkin Highway to provide new lanes in each direction from the Swan River to Collier Road, as well as new roads linking Guildford Road and Great Eastern Highway.
  • New bridges over the Swan River, Guildford Road, and Railway Parade.
  • A new Principal Shared Path (PSP) on the western side of Tonkin Highway
  • Noise walls
  • Upgraded lighting and intelligent transport systems (ITS) infrastructure

Bayswater Station Upgrade

The new Bayswater station is a key METRONET precinct which connects the Midland Line, Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley Ellenbrook Line, giving people the option to travel to the Airport, Swan Valley tourist region, the CBD and beyond.

The Bayswater Station project looks to balance priorities identified during stakeholder and community consultation (from March 2018), such as improving connections across the railway, allowing for increased bus services to the station, improving cycling and pedestrian movements and creating a rail bridge and station that fits within and compliments the town centre.
