Works update

Forrestfield Station continues to take shape with all roof sheeting now in place. Other roof-related works underway include installation of the aluminium bullnose edging and framing around the future skylights. The distinctive station roof will be visible from surrounding areas and clearly identify the entry point to the station.

Inside the station, fit-out is continuing on the two escalators, as well as the centrally-located information booth. Outside of the station, works are underway on the foundations for the bus canopy. 

Backfilling of the station retaining wall has been completed and earthworks have now begun to shape the required permanent ground levels between the station and future access roads.

The 135kv traction power substation is about 70 per cent complete. The traction power system supplies electric power to the suburban railway network, and the Forrestfield substation will house a single traction transformer. From here, electricity will be fed to the overhead line system. Current works include installation of in-ground services and a boundary wall near Maida Vale Road and Ibis Place.

At the southern end of the site, the stowage building is about 85 per cent complete, with only internal fit-out remaining.

Forrestfield Station

Located adjacent to Dundas Road, east of the Forrestfield freight marshalling yard and south of Maida Vale Road, Forrestfield Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth’s eastern suburbs and foothills.

Passengers will enter Forrestfield Station at an elevated arrival area with a clear view down to the 150m long island platform below. Access to the platform will be via a SmartRider fare gate, with escalators, lifts and stairs taking passengers to the lower level to meet the train.

There will be facilities for passengers arriving at the station by bus, car, bicycle or foot, with eight active bus bays, parking for up to 1200 vehicles and safe cycle and pedestrian routes.
