Works update

In time for the rainy months the crew has finished installing the station roof skylights. Designed to minimise energy use for lighting and assist patrons with wayfinding, the skylights align with the project's sustainability vision. The distinctive station roof will be visible from surrounding areas and clearly identify the entry point to the station.

The two lift shafts have also had glazing installed, while the assembly of the lift cabins is ongoing. Vertical transport in general played a big role in recent weeks, with the escalator fit-out now complete.

Outside the station, the installation of the bus canopy structure is almost finished.

At the eastern end of site, the slurry treatment plant, used to process the soil excavated by the two tunnel boring machines, is being disassembled and the water treatment plant has been relocated to make room for the construction of the station car park.

Last month ground was broken for the start of construction of the multi-deck car park. What looks like a large sandpit at the moment will transform into a three-level building accommodating 1200 vehicles and more than 50 motorcycle bays once completed. Parking will be available to Transperth patrons at a cost of two dollars per 24-hour period. 

At the northern end, the 135kv traction power substation has been constructed and is underging testing. The traction power system supplies electric power to the suburban railway network, and the High Wycombe substation will house a single traction transformer. From here, electricity will be fed to the overhead line system. 

High Wycombe Station

Located adjacent to Dundas Road, east of the Forrestfield freight marshalling yard and south of Maida Vale Road, High Wycombe Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth’s eastern suburbs and foothills.

Passengers will enter High Wycombe Station at an elevated arrival area with a clear view down to the 150m-long island platform below. Access to the platform will be via a SmartRider fare gate, with escalators, lifts and stairs taking passengers to the lower level to meet the train.

There will be facilities for passengers arriving at the station by bus, car, bicycle or foot, with eight active bus bays, parking for up to 1200 vehicles and safe cycle and pedestrian routes.
