The new Airport Line is ready for take-off, and we’re ready to celebrate!
It’s a wrap! A major milestone was achieved earlier this week with tunnelling now complete after tunnel boring machine (TBM) Sandy broke through at the Bayswater dive structure on Monday.
Tunnelling on METRONET's Forrestfield-Airport Link is now complete after tunnel-boring machine (TBM) Sandy broke through at the Bayswater dive structure yesterday (April 20).
Vibrant community centres in Bayswater and Forrestfield are a step closer with the formal establishment of redevelopment area boundaries, together with Midland, forming the new METRONET East projects.
In late July 2017, TBM Grace set off from Forrestfield to Bayswater, building the tunnel that will house the Forrestfield-bound trains. On February 18 tunnel boring machine (TBM) Grace arrived at Bayswater Junction, marking a major milestone and the end of her 8km tunnelling journey.
METRONET's Forrestfield-Airport Link is continuing to take off with Airport Central Station now at 70 per cent completion and work on the Skybridge linking Perth Airport and the future train station almost finished.
