Recent research showed that local residents are now ready for more information about specific details of the project. We will be holding several community information sessions in late August and early September to give you more information about the project, the next steps and how this might affect you.
Over the coming weeks, the Forrestfield-Airport Link website will be refreshed. As well as a new look and feel to it, the website will also contain new features such as an interactive rail map which can be used throughout the project to find the latest information in your community zone.
You can also use the website to sign up for information specific to your local community zone – and find out about the upcoming community information sessions.
Please continue to check the website http://www.forrestfieldairportlink.wa.gov.au/ to see the new one once it’s live.
