Defining designs | Project WA
Construction of the new Perth Stadium and
Sports Precinct commenced in December 2014,
with the project on schedule to open in time for
the start of the 2018 AFL season.
The 60,000-seat, multi-purpose stadium
will be capable of hosting AFL, rugby union and
league, football (soccer), and cricket, as well as
major world-class entertainment events. It will
offer the widest range of seating, hospitality
options, and state-of-the-art technology in the
country, including some of the largest video
screens in Australia.
The Stadium will be surrounded by an
activated Sports Precinct with restaurants,
children’s playgrounds, picnic and barbecue
facilities, and bike paths.
A range of public transport infrastructure
has been integrated into the design, and will
move more than 80 per cent of a capacity
crowd. On the Peninsula, fans will be able to
use a new six-platform rail station, bus stands
and a new pedestrian bridge linking the
Burswood Peninsula to East Perth.
COST Stadium and Sports Precinct, $912.3m;
transport infrastructure, $358.6m
SIZE 6ha (the northern portion of the Burswood Peninsula)
