A lot can happen in a year, and that's certainly been the case since construction of the Forrestfield-Airport Link kicked off on November 3, 2016.
A second TBM has officially begun tunnelling at Forrestfield, as part of the $1.86 billion METRONET Forrestfield-Airport Link project.
Salini Impregilo – NRW Joint Venture will design and build 8km of underground rail tunnels and three new train stations.
Environmental management is a key priority during construction of the Forrestfield-Airport Link. Building the new line underground will reduce the impact to the natural environment, local residents and businesses.
The Forrestfield-Airport Link’s two tunnels will be constructed with 54,000 concrete segments. A Forrestfield warehouse has been transformed into a facility to batch the concrete and create segments to line the two tunnels.
