Air­port sta­tion work be­gins

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

WORK has be­gun on Perth Air­port’s train sta­tion, which is set to get pas­sen­gers from the CBD to the air­port in un­der 20 min­utes for the cost of a two zone ticket.

The sta­tion will pro­vide di­rect ac­cess to ter­mi­nals 1 and 2 with a di­rect 18-minute train jour­ney from the air­port to the city.

“The For­rest­field-Air­port Link will pro­vide af­ford­able, ef­fi­cient and quick ac­cess to the air­port and east­ern foothills; it will be a two zone fare from the CBD,” Trans­port Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti said.

Two zone tick­ets are cur­rently $4.60 for adults and $1.90 con­ces­sion.

Air­port Cen­tral sta­tion is one of three sta­tions set to be built as part of the new rail link, along with Bel­mont and For­rest­field sta­tions.

Artist im­pres­sions have been re­leased to co­in­cide with the start of work, show­ing a walk­way be­tween the air­port ter­mi­nals and sta­tion, and nat­u­ral light sup­plied to the con­course and plat­form lev­els.

The sta­tion will have lifts, stairs, es­ca­la­tors, toi­lets, tick­et­ing and in­for­ma­tion ser­vices, a kiosk, and cus­tomer ser­vice staff.

“With work now un­der way, this project will de­liver a sig­nif­i­cant jobs boost for West Aus­tralians and help im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity across our sub­urbs,” Pre­mier Mark McGowan said.
