The Infrastructure Sustainability Council (ISC) Rating Scheme is Australia and New Zealand’s only comprehensive rating system for evaluating economic, social and environmental performance of infrastructure across the planning, design, construction and operational phases of infrastructure assets.
From the get-go the METRONET Forrestfield-Airport Link project committed to being an innovative and sustainable project, providing a solution for enhancing the connectivity, liveability and prosperity of Perth and its eastern suburbs, including the airport. The PTA, in conjunction with lead contractor Salini Impregilo - NRW Joint Venture took a holistic approach that informed thinking and decision-making to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations.
In 2018, the project was awarded an Excellent Design Rating recognising the project’s commitment to an innovative and sustainable transport solution for Western Australia.
With the project complete and the Airport Line operational, an As Built rating was sought. In December 2022, the Infrastructure Sustainability Council awarded a Leading Rating – the highest classification within the framework – verifying that the commitments made as part of the design have been successfully implemented.
The METRONET Forrestfield-Airport Link project is proud to be the first rail project in Western Australia to achieve an IS rating, delivering a sustainable legacy for the people of Western Australia.
