28,000 football fans could be on their way home within an hour of the final siren, thanks to Perth’s new stadium station.

The Western Australia Government is developing a 60,000 capacity stadium on Perth’s Burswood Peninsula, including a $358 million program of transport infrastructure improvements.

Part of that improvement program includes the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia (PTA)’s $100 million Perth Stadium Station.

When operational, the railway station will be capable of transporting up to 28,000 football fans home within an hour of the final siren, reducing the potential for post-match crowd congestion.

The station works are scheduled for completion in mid-2017 and will improve the entertainment experience for supporters attending games at the new stadium during the 2018 AFL premiership season.

AECOM, Laing O’Rourke and PTA will form the PRISM Alliance to deliver the new station, along with additional railcar stowage at Victoria Park and the first at-source stormwater management system to be used on a railway project in Western Australia.

This is not the first time the two companies have partnered, having previously teamed up on the Manchester Town Hall Complex and the Salford Schools for the Future program.
