The Forrestfield-Airport Link through Perth Airport will provide rail services from Forrestfield in the Shire of Kalamunda to the Perth CBD and the full Transperth bus and train network. The project will include construction of new suburban stations at Forrestfield, the Airport Consolidated Terminal and Airport West (Domestic Airport precinct).
The Forrestfield station will service rail passenger demand in the eastern and south-eastern residential suburbs of High Wycombe, Maida Vale, Forrestfield and the Perth hills areas of Kalamunda and Lesmurdie. The 8.5km rail link will connect with the existing Midland line near Bayswater Station.
The Forrestfield-Airport Link provides a rail solution that improves transport connectivity to and from Perth Airport, the eastern suburbs and regional centres.
20-minutes from Forrestfield to Perth CBD
A terminus station at Forrestfield will be a significant public transport boost to the surrounding area, allowing for a 20-minute rail journey to the Perth CBD.
The Airport West station will serve the new Business Park and commuters around the City of Belmont.
- The Project Definition Plan is under development and will be released late 2014.
