Perth Airport Welcomes State Government Support

Westralia Airports Corporation, the operator of Perth Airport, has welcomed the announcement by the Premier of Western Australia, highlighting arterial roads in the vicinity of Perth Airport as the State’s number one infrastructure priority.

The arterial roads around Perth Airport have become increasingly congested during the traditional morning and evening metropolitan peak hours, making it difficult for users of the airport, including international visitors, to access the terminals due mainly to Tonkin Highway congestion.

Perth Airport has been assisting the State Government to develop plans for arterial road upgrades in the vicinity of Kewdale and Perth Airport, particularly Tonkin Highway and its connections with Leach Highway, Horrie Miller Drive and Roe Highway.

These upgrades, which the Premier confirmed as a high priority for the State, will compliment Westralia Airports Corporation’s major redevelopment of the airport.

“The redevelopment of Perth Airport and the government’s plans to upgrade the city’s highways in the Kewdale area will combine to deliver a greatly improved experience for local airport users, international visitors and local residents who will benefit from less congestion” said Perth Airport CEO, Brad Geatches. “We can continue with our plans to progressively consolidate all passenger air services into the international precinct knowing that the arterial road network will also be upgraded to meet the needs of the new airport. The support of the State Government and their commitment to this project is certainly to be commended.”

Perth Airport’s plans to invest $300 million in the first phase of the major airport redevelopment remain on track and include a new Domestic Terminal, “Terminal WA”, major expansions to the International Terminal and an on-airport public road connecting the two airport precincts.

Terminal WA will be built next to the current International Terminal and once complete, a number of the domestic airlines will relocate to the new terminal from the current domestic precinct. This new terminal marks the first phase in the progressive consolidation of Perth Airport into one precinct.

Construction of Terminal WA is expected to commence in mid 2010 and will be completed in early 2012. The redevelopment of the International Terminal is also expected to be completed in 2012.

 The on-airport public road connecting the two precincts is being fully-funded by Perth Airport at a cost of $21 million. This new road will be open to the public within 12 months and will greatly reduce the time taken to transfer between the two airport precincts. Perth Airport will also be commencing a high quality, regular shuttle bus service between the two precincts on the new road.
