The future Morley Station, part of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, will give people living in Morley, Embleton and the northern section of Bayswater more transport options and provide new opportunities for living and working within walking distance of the station.
Only a three-minute train ride from Bayswater Station and a 15-minute journey to Perth, Morley Station will be built within the Tonkin Highway median at the Broun Avenue bridge. High-frequency bus services will link the station to the Morley Galleria, surrounding businesses and local community.
To make the most of this once in a lifetime investment, a Morley Station Precinct Concept Master Plan is being developed in consultation with the City of Bayswater, and with input from the community.
The plan sets the design vision and high-level roadmap for planning and infrastructure delivery around the station to enhance the area and connections to Morley centre and Galleria.
In April we asked what you think the future should look like around Morley Station, and 262 of you gave us your feedback which will inform the first stages of the Concept Master Plan development.
Landscaping and green spaces, cafes and walking connections came out as the top things you’d like to see in the area in 10 years’ time. More information on the results is available in our fact sheet.
In June and July, a Community Reference Group (CRG) will meet to inform the development of the Concept Master Plan. The CRG members are:
Josh Beaver, Tim Benson, Karen Bush, Peter Corbellini, Roberto Guerrini, Brad McIntyre, Jesse Williams, Phillip Winn and City of Bayswater officers x2 (skate park; strategic planning).
CRG members responded to a call for nominations earlier this year, and were selected to represent a range of demographics, locations, interests and experiences. Ten members were selected from 20 nominations.
Following each meeting, minutes will be uploaded here.
