Sustainability

 

Forrestfield-Airport Link will be an innovative and sustainable project. It will provide a solution for enhancing the connectivity, liveability and prosperity of Perth and its eastern suburbs including the airport. It is a journey to deliver a landmark transport project  – Our Sustainability Vision

 

The Forrestfield-Airport Link will extend the public transport network, which helps contribute to sustainable development by reducing vehicle use and improving the liveability, connectivity and amenity of residential areas in Perth’s eastern suburbs. But public rail infrastructure alone will not make a project sustainable.

In support of this commitment to sustainable thinking and decision making, a sustainability statement has been developed for the Forrestfield-Airport Link. Our Sustainability Statement outlines the ways in which the project is committed to sustainability for the whole project.

The project has registered for an ISCA rating, which is the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia's formal rating system. The rating system evaluates sustainability across planning, design, construction and operation of infrastructure. More information about ISCA is available here.

By applying the ISCA framework, the Forrestfield-Airport Link takes into account environmental and heritage preservation and compliance, within a structure that tracks project performance against environmental, social and economic project goals.
