Forrestfield-Airport Link

Forrestfield-Airport Link

The Forrestfield-Airport Link is a jointly Federal and State Government funded $1.86 billion project that has delivered a new rail service to the eastern suburbs of Perth – with three new stations at Redcliffe, Airport Central and High Wycombe.

The link, now known as the Airport Line, is an 8.5km three-station railway spur connected to the Midland Line near Bayswater Station.

As well as providing a 20-minute train trip between the city and the eastern suburbs, the rail link has made access to Perth Airport quicker, easier and more affordable for Perth residents and visitors alike.

This project is also a catalyst for significant residential and commercial development in the areas around the three new stations, creating opportunities for local businesses and communities alike.
