Perth Stadium Station Entry

Fans looking forward to heading to Perth Stadium in 2018 can now see what the $40million train station will look like, using an app on their smart phone or tablet.

  • Public to get insider’s view of Perth Stadium Station
  • Sneak peek of station platform, concourse and entry using a smart phone or tablet
  • Construction well under way, with completion due mid 2017

The App, called LORAR+, allows users to get first-person 360 degree views of the station platforms, upper concourse, facade and the promenade leading to Perth 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 version of Perth Stadium Station is no exception,” Mr Nalder said.

“The virtual representation will also help Perth Stadium passengers to navigate the area when it opens to the public.”

Construction of Perth Stadium Station will reach a new milestone this week, with the installation of the station’s steel superstructure set to start.

As part of the $358m integrated transport plan for Perth Stadium, a second set of tracks will be constructed alongside the existing Armadale Line. Later this year, train services will need to be transferred across to this new section of line.

As a result of these major construction activities, over the coming months a number of planned disruptions will be required on the Armadale and Thornlie lines.

The first of these essential disruptions will take place this Friday (February 19) and run until first service Monday morning (February 22). Replacement buses will operate.

The majority of disruptions have been scheduled for weekends and evenings to minimise the impact on commuters, but a major nine-day shut will be required from July 1 – 10.
