Construction overview

In early 2016 the State Government announced the major contract for the Forrestfield-Airport Link had been awarded to Salini Impregilo – NRW Joint Venture (SI-NRW). The contract will see SI-NRW design and build 8km of rail tunnels and three new train stations, as well as maintain the infrastructure of some items for a 10-year period, once the project is complete in 2020.

The construction phase started in late-2016, with site establishment at Forrestfield. A further three construction sites will be established at Perth Airport, Belmont and Bayswater early in 2017. Minor sites, such as where cross passages and emergency exits are being constructed, will also be constructed. These minor sites are located mainly within road reserve areas.
