Development opportunities grow with METRONET East expansion


The Midland Redevelopment Area has been extended to encompass the precincts surrounding the Bayswater and Forrestfield train stations, with a renewed focus on vibrancy, housing and employment opportunities.

This expansion, known as the METRONET East Redevelopment Area, is intended to maximise the development opportunities from METRONET transport infrastructure.

Consultations with the cities of Bayswater, Kalamunda and Swan will take place in the coming months and the statutory process is expected to run for approximately 12 months.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said that she believes the best possible outcome for each of the METRONET East precincts would see them develop into more attractive areas for people to live, work and visit for recreation. 

"By creating METRONET East we bring together our commitment to creating more housing and employment choice and maximising our transformative investment in the Bayswater, Forrestfield and Midland areas.”

Forrestfield station works are well underway and the Bayswater Station Upgrade is expected to commence later this year. For more information relating to the METRONET East expansion, including maps of the proposed redevelopment areas, can be viewed here.
