Airport Central Community Zone
Construction of the link between the airport terminals and the station is progressing, with all twelve Skybridge steel frame modules now in place. Once complete, the Skybridge will provide an undercover access point to Airport Central Station. From this point, passengers will be able to travel by escalator or lift down to the concourse level. Learn more about the Skybridge here.
The station’s triple escalator system, which is 35m long and 15m high, has also been installed. Once operational, it will take 55 seconds to travel from top to bottom and a total of 8200 passengers can be transported per hour. It is the longest single-span uninterrupted escalator in the Southern Hemisphere. View footage of the escalator installation here.
Works are ongoing on the station platform located at base level. Almost 50 per cent of the station's 150m-long concrete platform slab has now been poured, with three more concrete pours to occur over the next few weeks.
