New Bayswater Station development application for comment
Thursday 8 October 2020
Have your say on the new Bayswater Station development application.
Updated artist impressions for the new Bayswater Station have been released, with the project scope expanded to include two escalators and a fresh new design aesthetic.
The architecture of the station has been designed with both rail and natural heritage in mind, with the finishes designed to mimic the metal fluting on our trains while also reflecting the ripples on the nearby Swan River.
While the project designs initially included lifts and stairs, the project team were able to revise the station footprint to include one upward escalator on each of the two station platforms.
The escalators will run from the eastern entry building in one direction up to each island platform.
Community consultation on Bayswater Station has been the most extensive in the history of public transport projects in Western Australia, with online surveys, community events, briefings, presentations, enquiries and community reference groups on the station's design.
The feedback obtained also led to tweaks to the architectural finishes of the design.
More colour, texture and streamlined shaping all have been incorporated into the finishes of the structure, as well as the design of the public spaces and landscaping.
This year alone the McGowan Government has seven METRONET projects under construction and another four METRONET projects moving into the procurement phase.
