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. 

Diaphragm walls for the underground station box have been completed and excavation of soil within the structure has begun.

We have now poured three of the six base slabs, totalling more than 6000m3 of concrete, for Airport Central Station. Other works required to prepare the base slab for concrete pours are progressing well, with 80 per cent (3600sqm) of waterproofing and 60 per cent (1000T) of steel reinforcing now in place.

 Construction of the false blocks to receive the TBMs has begun, with the first of four mass concrete pours recently completed.

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 2022. 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.
