Airport Central Community Zone
The construction site for Airport Central Station has been established directly south of the Perth Airport control tower near terminals 1 and 2.
While the majority of construction was initially located underground, structures of height have appeared recently. This includes the elevated entry to the Skybridge, which will provide passengers with an undercover connection between the train station and terminals. Learn more about the Skybridge here.
The first part of the station's steel structure, a 14m-long steel column supporting the escalator landing, has been installed in February and preparation works are underway for the installation of the escalator landing structure. The 35m-long escalator is due to arrive on site in May.
Of the two remaining sections of the 150m-long concourse slab the eastern end has been poured successfully and formwork is now being stripped, while preparations are underway for the pour of the western infill slab.
The new year has also seen construction commence on the second of nine staircases. Once complete it will connect platform and concourse levels as part of the station emergency escape routes. Works on the seven remaining staircases to be built throughout the station will begin in the coming months. Two of these staircases will be accessible by the public and the remainder will be used for a combination of staff access and emergency egress.
