Detour options

  • Whatley Crescent car park closure

    The western Whatley Crescent passenger car park will be closed from Monday 23 November for site preparation works.

    Works for the new Bayswater Station are ramping up. Part of these works mean that the western (CBD-side) Whatley Crescent car park will be permanently closed.

    The car park is already partially closed, this will be the final section of car park to close.

    The eastern Whatley Crescent car park will remain open until 4 January 2021.

    Throughout construction the Railway Parade car park will stay open and additional car parking was added at Meltham and Ashfield stations, with free parking available at Ashfield Station until the new Bayswater Station opens

    The Bayswater Station bike shelter will close as of Friday 20 November 2020. Additional bike lockers will be installed in the northern passenger car park along Railway Parade. Bike lockers were deemed to be the best temporary bike storage solution.

  • Upcoming works and detours - Jan/Feb 2021

    Sheet piling and excavation works:

    • Works will begin in February to prepare for construction of the new station bridges and abutments.
    • Works include installation of temporary and permanent sheet piling, and removal of materials, some vegetation and the southern carparks.

    Utility services relocation works:

    • Telecommunications, electricity and sewerage service providers will be relocating cables and pipes in streets surrounding the station from the end of January to June 2021.

    Changes to Whatley Crescent:

    • Whatley Crescent is now permanently operating as a single lane in both directions between King William Street and Garratt Road.
    • Traffic signalling updates at the King William Street intersection are expected to take place in early February.
    • The section between Hamilton and King William streets is currently reduced to a single city-bound lane, and will permanently close in the coming months, to make way for the Beechboro South realignment
