The app, LORAR+ gives users access to first-person, 360-degree views of the station platforms, upper concourse, facade and the promenade leading to the stadium.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the 3D images could be viewed by scanning online markers.

“Every year we see new and more innovative technologies as part of major smart transport projects, and this augmented reality vision of Perth Stadium Station is no exception,” Mr Nalder said.

“The virtual representation will enable Perth Stadium Station commuters to get an understanding of how the stadium will look when they utilise the new route to go.”

Mr Nalder said the transport works for the stadium, including the station, a pedestrian bridge, roadworks and bus stands, would create up to 1350 direct jobs.

The transport project will cost about $100 million, with $40 million for the station itself and $60 million for supporting infrastructure.
