Works update

Tunnelling at Forrestfield, the site that hosts the infrastructure vital to tunnel boring machine (TBM) operations, began in August (TBM Grace) and October (TBM Sandy) 2017. The site is operating 24 hours a day to support tunnelling activities, including processing excavated soil and treating water for reuse in the tunnelling process.

Construction of infrastructure is progressing well across all areas of the site.

After completing the station platform foundation walls, backfilling has begun. Within the next few weeks all utilities including hydraulic, electrical and fire protection services for the station platform will be completed.

At concourse level, a number of concrete pours have been completed for the station’s 130m-long concourse slab. To enable the last section to be poured, three 4m-wide and 8m-tall tilt-up panels have been added to the station's retaining wall. The slab is expected to be finalised by the end of April, by which time a total of 300 cubic metres of concrete will have been poured. Installation of steel, to form the station roof, will commence shortly after.

South of the station, the stowage building’s brickwork and roof construction have recently been completed. The stowage area is the place where trains will be maintained whilst not in use. Topping slabs for the stowage area platforms will be constructed next.

At the northern end of the site brickwork on the portal building is progressing well and construction of lift and stair shafts is ongoing.

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 1900 vehicles and safe cycle and pedestrian routes.

The project team is working closely with local government to ensure the new station compliments their vision for the future of the local area. For more information about local planning visit the City of Kalamunda's website

Forrestfield Community Group

Engagement with local businesses and residents remains a focus for the project team. To help ensure we remain aware of local issues, the project team has established community advisory groups for each of the project's community zones. 

At these meetings, Forrestfield Community Group members are presented with design information and details of project progress, and asked to provide feedback, guidance and local knowledge during site establishment and early construction works.
