Airport Central Community Zone
Construction of the Skybridge between the airport terminals and the station has now reached practical completion. Once operational, the elevated walkway will provide undercover access to Airport Central Station. From this point, passengers will be able to travel by escalator or lift down to the concourse level.
Installation of the 12 steel trusses that form the station's 51m-wide roof frame has been completed. Underway is the installation of specially designed roof sheeting, which will reduce glare for pilots flying in and out of Perth airport.
Just below ground, internal fit-out is ongoing for the back-of-house rooms on the mezzanine level.
At the base level of the station, the island platform is now 75 per cent complete. The final section of the platform will be poured in the coming months, with preparation works already underway.
Crews are about to recommence fit-out on the vertical transport. First up are the escalators connecting the concourse and platform levels, followed by the large escalator located in the station's atrium. Next in line will be the station's lifts. Fit-out of these services is extensive and will take about eight months to complete.
