Stadium Station Construction Progress

Video text with computer generated animation: The six-platform Stadium Station is part of the new Perth Stadium transport strategy. With a train leaving every two to three minutes, Stadium Station will move 28,000 people on event days.

To minimise rail disruptions, two tower cranes will be positioned clear of the operating Armadale/Thornlie lines.

Through clever design, the steel concourse deck is 75% lighter, creating project savings. Such as reducing the number of piles from 250 to 180 and reducing the number of columns per platform from 6 to 3, making it a better passenger experience.

Rail operations will then switch into the completed section of the station to allow the third and final platform to be built.

The new Perth Stadium and Stadium Station will be open in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
