Airport Central Community Zone

Works update

With the roof structure in place, major structural works are starting to wind up and building finishes are taking centre stage at Airport Central Station. Sections of the building's exterior are being dressed with shiny glazing, while the atrium ceiling is being fitted out with timber-look veneer.

Below ground, at concourse level, crews are attaching aluminium cladding to the southern wall of the atrium.

And all the way down at platform level, works are ongoing to fit-out the escalators and lifts, as well as install fire detection and gas suppression systems at the eastern platform back-of-house rooms.

Construction of the Skybridge between the airport terminals and the station reached practical completion in early 2020. Once operational, the elevated walkway will provide undercover access to Airport Central Station. From this point, passengers will be able to travel by escalator or lift down to the concourse level.

Airport Central Station

With air passenger traffic more than doubling in the past decade, Perth Airport is undergoing a major redevelopment, which includes relocating and consolidating the domestic and international terminals by 2025. This presents a unique opportunity to integrate the redevelopment with the new Airport Line via a station at the central terminal site.

By late 2021, passengers will be able to travel by train to the airport, stopping at the underground Airport Central Station currently under construction near the control tower at Perth Airport.

Once opened, Airport Central Station will create a seamless journey from the airport terminals via the Skybridge, an elevated and enclosed walkway featuring travelators and lifts. Passengers will enter the station via the walkway and travel by lift or escalator down to the concourse level, where the station facilities including ticketing are located. They will then continue through the SmartRider fare gates down to the platform level to meet the train.
