Construction starts on Forrestfield-Airport Link


Work is underway on Perth's Forrestfield-Airport Link (FAL) following a sod turning ceremony on 03.11.2016 at the site of the future Forrestfield Station. The FAL will provide a much-needed 20-minute public transport link between Perth's CBD and the eastern suburbs. The FAL project will create an 8.5 km rail line, from a spur on the Midland Line east of Bayswater Station, largely underground to Dundas Road in Forrestfield.  It will include three new train stations: two underground at Belmont (near Brearley Avenue) and Airport Central (Perth Airport T1/T2) and another above ground at Forrestfield. Two TBMs will arrive from Germany in mid-2017, when drilling is expected to start.  The deepest tunnel point under the Swan River will be 26 m, and the average depth under the airport apron and runways will be 15m.
