Evolve Bayswater Alliance (Coleman Rail) has been selected as the preferred proponent to design and build the new Bayswater Station project as part of METRONET project in Western Australia.

Expected to create more than 350 jobs, the new station will form a major transport hub that will link the Midland Line to METRONET's future Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley-Ellenbrook Line, as well as key cycling routes.

The scope of work under the Bayswater Station project includes the construction of the new station, surrounding precinct works and the new platforms and rail infrastructure to support the Forrestfield-Airport Link and the future connection with the Morley-Ellenbrook Line.

The contractor will also build a rail turnback required for Forrestfield-Airport Link operations west of the new train station.

Western Australian Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said: "Bayswater is on track to becoming one of Perth's best connected communities, with access to three rail lines and many bus services.

"Building this project, combined with construction of other nearby major projects like the Tonkin Gap and Morley-Ellenbrook Line, will help support the WA economy through some tough times ahead.

"This exciting METRONET project will allow us to build a better public transport network that links Perth with growing outer suburbs like Ellenbrook and Forrestfield."

The new Bayswater Station project will form a junction for the Midland Line, Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley-Ellenbrook Line.

Subject to signing of a contract, the Alliance will work with the Public Transport Authority on the detailed design and construction schedule required for the new station.

Early works at Bayswater Station have commenced in 2019. Work is being carried out to relocate the main cable route.

Work is also underway to build additional passenger parking at Meltham and Ashfield stations for use during the construction phase.
