Stadium Rail Project progressing on time

Three proponents have advanced to the final stage of the procurement process to build the $100 million Stadium Station and associated rail infrastructure works on the Burswood Peninsula.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder today announced that Brookfield Multiplex/Downer, Laing O’Rourke/AECOM and John Holland would now enter the final phase of the tender process with the Public Transport Authority.

Mr Nalder said it was vitally important that the public transport infrastructure was of high quality and delivered on time, as most visitors to the new Perth Stadium would travel via public transport.

“This contract will involve not only building the Stadium Station, but also significant rail works, including infrastructure that will enable Transperth to store up to 117 railcars on the Burswood Peninsula,” he said.

“Because of this, the six-platform Stadium Station will deliver unprecedented levels of service to Perth’s public transport users.

“Once the stadium and train station are up and running, the era of waiting for hours in your car after a big concert or football match will be a thing of the past.  Public transport will be the most efficient and effective way to travel to and from this world-class venue.”

In June, Hassell Ltd was awarded a $5.5 million contract to design the six-platform station, which will be built on the former Belmont Park Station site. Stadium Station is a significant part of the $358 million integrated transport component of the stadium and sports precinct.

“Once the construction tender is finalised, we expect work will begin in mid-2015 and will be completed in late 2017, leaving plenty of time for testing before the stadium opens for the start of the 2018 AFL season,” the Minister said.

The site is currently being prepared so construction of the new Perth Stadium can start on schedule by the end of 2014.
