Bayswater Community Zone
At the Bayswater Junction portal, works on the portal building’s lift shaft have been completed, with the shaft now spanning several levels.
Currently under construction is the topping slab, which will enable the building to sit partly atop the dive structure. Once finalised, works in this area will be put on hold until both TBMs have broken through into the dive structure. Here they will be dismantled and craned out in sections, some of which will be recycled by the manufacturer.
At the western end of the site, the final section of the 232m-long principal shared path (PSP) retaining wall has been poured, with backfilling ongoing.
At the Midland Line overpass, where trains travelling from Midland to Perth will cross over the Forrestfield Line, steel and concrete works have recommenced for construction of the overpass ballast box. The ballast box effectively consists of concrete walls and a base of coarse aggregate (ballast) responsible for holding the rail track in place, while allowing rainwater to drain.
