METRONET Information

The Midland and Airport lines will close from Friday 31 March to Wednesday 26 April 2023 to carry out essential works for the METRONET New Bayswater Station and Morley-Ellenbrook Line projects.


During the shutdown, Transperth will operate rail replacement buses.


While the Midland and Airport lines will reopen from 26 April, Bayswater Station will remain closed until September 2023 while the southern platform is completed and is made safe for passenger use.


While the station is closed, a free shuttle service between Bayswater and Meltham stations will be provided. Existing, regular passengers of Bayswater Station can apply for a special SmartRider that will provide free travel for three months. Terms and Conditions apply. Details about the application process will be available on the Transperth website in early-March.


Essential station, rail and associated infrastructure works will be completed during the shutdown including replacing 1.8km of track to realign the Midland Line onto the new and higher rail bridge and start works on the Morley-Ellenbrook Line connection.


There will be continuous, round-the-clock works during the shutdown period and beyond as we progress these two major projects.


We will keep the community informed about works and anticipated impacts through emails, our website and letters. We encourage you to register for project updates at


Thank you in advance for your ongoing patience and understanding as we continue to progress two major METRONET projects in the Bayswater area.
