Perth's new Stadium Station is coming together nicely

A new animated video of the Perth Stadium Station shows the impressive scale of the project, as well as its large bus bay – with the capacity to load up to 20 buses at a time.

Efficient public transport has been a key consideration with $358 million budgeted on an integrated transport solution for the new Perth Stadium in Burswood.

The video gives an insight into what will become the second biggest station on the Transperth network, with construction now well underway.

Western Australia transport minister Dean Nalder says the video shows how bus, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure is incorporated into 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," he says.

"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 former 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.

Six-hundred bike racks will be available at the station, which is due to be completed in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
