The Perth Stadium Station project is of strategic importance to the Public Transport Authority (PTA) and the State Government of Western Australia and will provide a long-lasting legacy for the people and City of Perth. The project enabled the PTA to concurrently develop an integrated transport system putting fans’ needs at the heart of the development of the stadium.

The PTA commissioned the PRISM Alliance comprising the PTA, AECOM and Laing O’Rourke to deliver the project and AECOM worked on two project phases, including delivering the detailed design of:

  • A new train station on Burswood Peninsula (Stadium Station) comprising two concourses accessed from passenger assembly areas within the new Stadium Precinct via stairs and lifts
  • Two island platforms of 225m length and one island platform of 150m length, accommodating six faces for passenger loading, and with an allowance for future extension of platforms 1, 2, 5 and 6 to 300m
  • Track and civil works on Burswood Peninsula to facilitate the operation of the new station as a special events station and to accommodate stowage for up to 117 individual railcars
  • Track and civil works at Victoria Park to accommodate stowage for up to 24 individual railcars
  • All associated Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) works, three new trackside signalling equipment rooms, and driver crib facilities on Burswood Peninsula and at Victoria Park
  • Rail systems works comprising electrical works, communications works and infrastructure service interfaces, as required (e.g. video, CCTV/PA, passenger information systems, fire systems, earthing and bonding of structures and systems)
  • Track and OLE works to provide a turn-back facility for services on the Midland line at East Perth Station
  • Replacing the existing footbridge with a new footbridge complying with the Disability Discrimination Act and the extension of narrow-gauge platforms for trains in both directions to 150m
  • Low voltage electrical, utility and railway services works.

Apart from implementing innovating design solutions, the PRISM Alliance integrated ‘Digital Engineering’ into the design and construction to identify the potential health and safety risks associated with constructing the project.

The Building Information Management (BIM) model developed for the project enabled electronic archiving of the new infrastructure, which will provide significant benefits to the PTA for operating and maintaining this vital transport infrastructure throughout its life.
