Bayswater Community Zone
Railway Parade site:
A construction site has been established near the corner of Railway Parade and Bassendean Road, Bayswater. Facilities at the site include fencing, site buildings, car parking and laydown areas. To allow safe egress to and from the site, a temporary closure of one lane along a section of Railway Parade will remain in place until late 2017.
A retaining wall, 500m long and up to 5m high, will be built adjacent to Railway Parade. Construction began in May 2017 and will take about three months to complete. The temporary Midland rail line will then be constructed closer to Railway Parade between August and December. For more information view the latest Bayswater Community Zone update.
Whatley Crescent site:
The current cycle path which links Guildford Road to Whatley Crescent traverses the Bayswater Junction construction site. With early works now underway, the path is being closed in stages from late August.
Pedestrians will be moved to an existing path on the southern side of Whatley Crescent. Cyclists will be moved to the road, although they can also use the existing footpath if required.
We have worked closely with Main Roads, PTA, Department of Transport, BWA and the City of Bayswater before preparing the shared path relocation. These stakeholders have also reviewed and contributed to the Traffic Management Plan that incorporates the management of the identified risks - which will include a speed reduction in Whatley Crescent, and relevant signage to protect cyclists and pedestrians. The Plan is currently with the City of Bayswater for final approval.
