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 is located underground, a structure of height has appeared at Airport Central Station recently. The building forms the entry to the Skybridge, which will provide passengers with an undercover connection between the train station and terminals. Learn more about the Skybridge here.
There are two remaining sections of the 150m-long concourse slab to be poured before works are completed. These include the final section on the eastern end of the station box, which is already underway, and the final section on the western side, which will be completed mid-year.
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.
Elevator and escalator pits will be constructed at platform level in the coming months and installation of the escalator connecting the elevated walkway and concourse levels is scheduled for May this year.
