The Western Australian Government has committed to deliver the Forrestfield-Airport Link Project (FAL). As depicted above, the proposed FAL electrified railway line links the Perth eastern suburb of Forrestfield to the city. The majority of the 8.5 km double track line will be located in an underground tunnel. The new line connects with the existing Midland line north of the existing Bayswater Station.

The project is an integral component of Perth’s long-term public transport network and is designed to meet existing and future public transport demand by providing improved connectivity between Perth’s eastern suburbs, Perth Airport and its business hubs, and the Perth Central Business District.
The presentation will provide an overview of the project and discuss in more detail the design of the major elements of the project including the tunnels and cross passages, dive structures, egress shafts and portal buildings and the three new stations at Belmont, Airport Central and Forrestfield.  The presentation will end with an update on the construction progress.
