The first images of the new Perth Stadium train station have been revealed.

Western Australia Transport Minister Dean Nalder describes the design as a modern and vibrant piece of infrastructure which will complement the new Perth Stadium.

The station and associated railway infrastructure, valued at $100 million, is part of a $358 million integrated transport component for the stadium.

Releasing the artist’s impressions, Nalder says it will rival the public transport options at some of the world’s most popular sporting venues.

"The new station will allow for a train to leave the station every few minutes after a capacity-event crowd and will feature three island platforms with six platform faces for passenger loading," he says.

"Aesthetically, the colour will complement the design of the new Perth Stadium, which has a striking bronze coloured facade.

"A wide roof reaches out from the enclosed concourse to protect passengers from the weather. Public art will also be incorporated into the final design."

Work is already under way to prepare the station site for construction to begin.

The existing railway tracks at the former Belmont Park station have been shifted, ready for construction to start later this year.

Construction of the new Perth Stadium started in December 2014 and is due to be completed for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
