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 are now clearly visible. 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 station’s triple escalator system, which is 35m long and 15m high, has now been installed. The escalator will connect the Skybridge to the concourse level. 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.
The station’s platform continues to take shape with construction of the platform walls ongoing.
