Construction overview

In early 2016, the State Government awarded the major contract for the METRONET Forrestfield-Airport Link to Salini Impregilo – NRW Joint Venture (SI-NRW). The contract requires SI-NRW to design and build 8km of twin-bored rail tunnels and three new train stations, as well as maintain the infrastructure of some assets for a 10-year period.

The construction phase started late-2016 with site establishment at High Wycombe. A further three construction sites were established at Perth Airport, Redcliffe and Bayswater in 2017, as well as a number of smaller sites (mainly within road reserve) for cross passages and emergency egress shafts.

Works are now complete on the line, but for more information on each station visit the relevant Community Zone page:
