About the Project


Forrestfield-Airport Link is a new train line that will connect Forrestfield to the city, opening up Perth’s eastern suburbs to the rail network for the first time — and giving Perth Airport users a travel option five minutes faster than by car. 

The rail link will connect with the existing Midland line near Bayswater Station and will run to Forrestfield through underground tunnels, to ensure minimal impact on the existing land and road network. The $2billion State Government-funded Forrestfield-Airport Link is the transport solution to improve connections to and from Perth Airport, the eastern suburbs and regional centres.


In April 2016, the Public Transport Authority awarded the design, construct and maintenance contract to Salini Impregilo - NRW Joint Venture (SI-NRW).

SI-NRW is committed to supporting local businesses for the benefit of the project and the local community. Visit the SI-NRW website for more information.
