Tunnel boring machine (TBM) Grace has been very busy in 2018 reaching the halfway mark (3571m) of her underground journey in November, and clearing the airside environment in December.
The Forrestfield-Airport Link is continuing to move forward, with significant progress made on the project and rectification measures identified for a damaged 26 metre section of one tunnel.
On Saturday September 22, a leak developed at the first tunnel-to-tunnel cross passage, approximately 200m north of the Forrestfield Station site.
Forrestfield-Airport Link is a landmark transport project jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments. The new rail service to the eastern suburbs will enhance Perth's transport network, with three new stations at Redcliffe, Airport Central and Forrestfield.
Forrestfield Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth's growing eastern suburbs and foothills.
