To & from Perth Airport
Perth Airport has been working closely with the State Government over the past two years to determine the options for getting public transport to the airport, specifically a railway.
The $2 billion State Government-funded Forrestfield-Airport Link is the transport solution to improve connections to and from Perth Airport, the eastern suburbs and regional centres.
The rail link will connect with the existing Midland line near Bayswater Station and will run to Forrestfield through underground tunnels, to ensure minimal impact on the existing land and road network.
By providing a rail link to the foothills for the first time, the Forrestfield-Airport Link will improve public transport options to and from the airport and will help relieve pressure on existing roads. The improved transport options include providing a reliable alternative for airport workers and passengers.
Construction will begin in 2016 with the first trains running on the line in 2020.
