The new Airport Line is ready for take-off, and we’re ready to celebrate!
On March 28 the second of the Forrestfield-Airport Link’s two tunnel-boring machines was temporarily halted.
As we progress towards first trains using the Forrestfield Line in 2020, key infrastructure along the new alignment, including all three new stations, is now well into construction.
On Sunday 18 February Premier Mark McGowan and Transport Minister Rita Saffioti inspected tunnelling progress, walking the 1km tunnel bored by TBM Sandy
We have hit the ground running this year with tunnelling progressing well and construction underway at the stations, cross-passages and emergency egress shafts.
Our tunnel boring machines are sprinting towards the end of the year with Grace having tunnelled more than 1300m and Sandy more than 500m.
