The Perth Stadium ‘fans first’ experience will be enhanced through the provision of an improved and integrated public transport system comprising upgrades to road, rail, bus and pedestrian services allowing maximum public transport usage.
The upgraded system will not only improve public transport access for Stadium events, it will also have flow on benefits for other activities on the Burswood Peninsula.
Camfield Drive extension and associated pedestrian pathways
Camfield Drive is being extended from Great Eastern Highway to provide access to the new Crown Towers Perth. To increase access and minimise traffic congestion and delays during event days at Perth Stadium, Camfield Drive will be further extended to the Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct.
In parallel with the Camfield drive extension works, some new pedestrian pathways will be created through the parklands south of Perth Stadium.
These well-lit pedestrian routes will become an extension of the existing paths in the area. They will reduce the number of event patrons using Victoria Park Drive for pedestrian access to Crown Perth and residential areas through Burswood and Victoria Park.
Construction of these pathways will commence in 2017 and are due to be completed by the end of 2017.
