Each new station presents different opportunities for their local communities.
Built underground in the residential heart of Redcliffe, the station is an opportunity for the area to become an urban village that will serve the growing community and airport business park and direct factory outlet planned for the area.
That’s why the METRONET team is working closely with the City of Belmont on its plans which will eventually see the area designed with public spaces, shops, housing, cafes and other services nearby.

By 2025 all airlines are expected to have relocated to T1 and T2 (formerly known as the International Airport), where Airport Central Station is being constructed.
Not only will the station be used by airline passengers but will also provide a valuable link for Perth Airport employees.
The catchment area for Forrestfield Station includes the suburbs of High Wycombe, Forrestfield, Maida Vale, Gooseberry Hill and Kalamunda.
To make connecting with train services from these suburbs easier, the station precinct is being designed as an intermodal transport hub. This means there will be facilities for passengers arriving at the station by bus, car, bicycle or foot.
The City of Kalamunda is currently developing its Forrestfield North local structure plan for the land around the station.
The METRONET team is liaising with the City on their vision for the area which will include determining density levels and plans for mixed-use development.
