THE State Government has filmed a video showing people how to access the new Perth Stadium via public transport.
The new stadium in Burswood will be open for the 2018 AFL season, and has been designed with public transport in mind.
Transport Minister Bill Marmion said the video of the $358 million ‘Perth Stadium Transport Solution’ was more than just an impressive vision of things to come.
“This shows how easy it will be for people to catch public transport, walk, catch a coach or on-demand transport to where the action is,” Mr Marmion said.
“The video will help people keen to attend events at the new Perth Stadium plan their journeys ahead of time, and ensure they pick the travel option which best suits them.
“Whether it’s a picturesque walk across the Swan River pedestrian bridge, a cycle through the lush native gardens surrounding the Perth Stadium, or a relaxed trip on the train to the landmark Perth Stadium Station, there is an option to suit everyone.
“The Stadium Station itself will have capacity to move about 28,000 patrons in the first hour after an event.”
The Stadium Station is expected to be completed in the middle of next year, and will involve a 17-day disruption to services on the Armadale and Thornlie lines during the January school holidays.
