The $1.86 billion Forrestfield-Airport Link project is jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments and will deliver a new rail service to the eastern suburbs of Perth – with three new stations at Redcliffe, Airport Central and High Wycombe. The rail link supports part of the METRONET vision for a well-connected Perth with more transport, housing and employment choices.
The Airport Line will spur off the existing Midland Line near Bayswater Station and run to High Wycombe through twin-bored tunnels.
In April 2016 the Public Transport Authority awarded the design, construct and maintenance contract to Salini Impregilo – NRW Joint Venture.
First trains will operate on the new Airport Line in 2022.
