Airport Central Community Zone

Works update

The construction site for the Airport Central Station has been established directly south of the Perth Airport Control Tower. 

Both TBMs, which underwent a month-long maintenance program after breaking through into the station box in May, have now left Airport Central Station. Following the removal of the sacrificial segments used to guide the TBMs through the station box, the focus is now on the development of site infrastructure.

In-ground services such as fire, water, sewer and storm water have been installed, tested and backfilled around the station.

Footings to support the elevated walkway which will connect the station with the terminals have been completed, enabling further ground slab works.

The station is starting to take shape with recommencement of construction of the oval-shaped columns between concourse and ground levels, along with the construction of stair walls within the station box.

Airport Central Station

With air passenger traffic more than doubling in the past decade, Perth Airport is undergoing a major redevelopment, which includes relocating and consolidating the domestic and international terminals by 2025. This presents a unique opportunity to integrate the redevelopment with the new Forrestfield-Airport Link via a station at the central terminal site.

By 2020, passengers will be able to travel by train to the airport, stopping at the underground Airport Central Station to be built near the control tower at Perth Airport.
