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.
Recently, the landing for the main escalator was craned into position and affixed to the elevated walkway level. The escalator is due to arrive in May and will be installed before the station's main roof can be erected. Once operational, it will take 55 seconds to travel from Skybridge level to concourse level, were ticketing facilities will be located.
Construction of the ground slab for Airport Central Station is progressing well with waterproofing ongoing section by section.
The passenger stairwell walls have been erected to about halfway between base slab and ground level. Once complete the structure will assist in supporting the ground slab.
The station’s platform will start to take shape soon with construction of the platform walls on the eastern end due to commence.
