On Sunday 18 February Premier Mark McGowan and Transport Minister Rita Saffioti inspected tunnelling progress, walking the 1km tunnel bored by TBM Sandy
We have hit the ground running this year with tunnelling progressing well and construction underway at the stations, cross-passages and emergency egress shafts.
Forrestfield-Airport Link is a landmark transport project jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments. The new rail service to the eastern suburbs will enhance Perth's transport network, with three new stations at Redcliffe, Airport Central and Forrestfield.
Forrestfield Station will provide an accessible and efficient transport option to and from the city for Perth's growing eastern suburbs and foothills.
Our tunnel boring machines are sprinting towards the end of the year with Grace having tunnelled more than 1300m and Sandy more than 500m.
