Ronnie Hurst (Project Director, New Perth Stadium) – who was at The Design & Development Summit last year – has released some exciting news ahead of his new stadium opening.

Train passengers who will be attending events at the new Perth Stadium in Burswood have been given a first look at what the future Stadium Station will deliver.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder today released a video of the station, part of a $358m integrated smart transport solution for the new Perth Stadium that encompasses public transport, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

Mr Nalder said the animation provided an insight into the sheer scale of the project.

“This Government has developed a strategic, well-designed, and well-managed plan which will see 83 per cent of stadium patrons use public transport,” the Minister said.

“The station will allow up to 28,000 people to leave the site by train within an hour of an event ending.

“Stadium Station and its associated rail infrastructure is the major artery that will allow people to enjoy one of the biggest entertainment infrastructure investments ever made in this city.”

The animation shows the station’s six platforms, building design, entry and exit locations, as well as the surrounding road and rail modifications required to link the old Belmont Park site to the Armadale Line.

Related works on and around Victoria Park Drive, including extending the bridge to enable the new railway lines to be installed, are due to be completed by contractor Lend Lease Engineering in the coming months.

Stadium Station is being constructed by the PRISM Alliance (PTA, Laing O’Rourke and AECOM).

The station is due to be completed in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
