Transport Project Definition Plan released

14 December 2012

The new Perth Stadium has reached another milestone today with the release of the Transport PDP.

State Government has approved the Transport Project Definition Plan (PDP) that will guide development of the transport solution for the stadium and surrounding sports and recreation precinct.

The $298 million integrated train, bus and pedestrian approach will move up to 50,000 people, or 83 per cent of a capacity crowd, in the first hour after an event. It will also support a cultural shift of reliance on cars.

We know how important it is to make sure fans can get to and from the stadium in comfort and on-time. The multiple transport options reflect passenger behaviour and demands, to create a ‘passenger first’ solution that moves people quickly and safely, while minimising the impacts on nearby residential and environmental areas.

In refining the transport requirements, some differences have resulted between the transport solution outlined in the new Perth Stadium Master Plan endorsed by Cabinet in September 2012, and the final transport outcomes.  The differences are not significant, and are confined to the following changes:

  • The pedestrian bridge across Victoria Park Drive has been replaced with an underpass
  • The Bus Hub has been realigned & reconfigured
  • The Bus Hub is more compact and minimises impact  on the River and Stadium facilities
  • The access from the Bus Hub to Victoria Park Drive has been improved
  • The scale of the connection between the new Stadium and the pedestrian bridge over the River has been reduced
