Forrestfield-Airport Link

The Forrestfield-Airport Link is a jointly Federal and State Government funded $1.86 billion project which will radically improve the way people in the eastern foothills are connected with the CBD and wider Perth.

Completing the Forrestfield-Airport Link - an 8.5km three-station railway spur connected to the Midland Line near Bayswater Station – is part of the first stage of METRONET.

As well as creating a 20-minute train trip between the city and the eastern suburbs, once complete, the rail link will make access to Perth Airport quicker, easier and more affordable for Perth residents and visitors alike.

This project is about more than just boosting public transport options to the airport, or between the city and Forrestfield. It will also be a catalyst for significant residential and commercial development in the areas around the three new stations – at Redcliffe, Airport Central and Forrestfield, creating opportunities for local businesses and local communities alike.
