The shortlist of contractors to build the new Bayswater Station upgrade has been released, which aims to link two METRONET lines and create a new Perth transport hub.
Better Bayswater Alliance (Georgiou Group and Lendlease) and Evolve Bayswater Alliance (Coleman Rail and Decmil) made the list and will now progress to the competitive bid phase for the contract.
To win the bid, the two alliances will need to prove how they will design and construct the station and new King William Street/Coode Street bridge while minimising impacts to the Midland Line train operations.
Track, signalling, civil, drainage, overhead line works, electrical works, communications, retaining walls, and public spaces will need to be delivered as part of the contract.

The Bayswater Station project is the first stage of works for the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, with other major works underway to deliver additional parking spaces at Meltham and Ashfield stations to compensate for a reduction in parking at Bayswater.
Forward works are expected to begin before the end of the year, with the Tonkin Highway ‘Gap’ Project out to tender also including works to link the Morley-Ellenbrook Line into Bayswater Station.
WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said the Bayswater Station upgrade will creates a vibrant transport hub, linking two new METRONET lines.
The new METRONET Bayswater Station will become a major hub of our world-class rail network, with connections to the Forrestfield-Airport Link and Morley-Ellenbrook Line,” Saffioti said.
“With multiple METRONET projects on track, it’s an incredible time for the public transport industry in WA, as we see our future network constructed.”
