Hon Terry Waldron
Minister for Sport and Recreation; Racing and Gaming
The State Government has invited contractors to submit expressions of interest (EOI) for the design and construction of ground improvements for the new Perth Stadium at Burswood.
Sport and Recreation Minister Terry Waldron said the first stage of the pre-construction site works included earthworks to shape the stadium site and the surrounding sports precinct; and ground treatment works to prepare the playing field, adjacent plaza and access roads ahead of the main stadium construction works.
The second stage will focus on preparing the site for the transport infrastructure, subject to the Government’s approval of the transport project definition plan (PDP).
Mr Waldron said the EOI represented an important milestone in building the stadium.
“This timing is in line with the Government’s previous announcement that construction would start in 2014,” he said.
“We invite suitable contractors to apply to be part of this exciting project on the Burswood Peninsula.”
This EOI process to shortlist prospective contractors has been advertised on the Tenders WA website. It will be followed by a request for proposal, seeking detailed submissions from shortlisted respondents.
It is anticipated that a contract for the pre-construction site works will be awarded and works expected to start in the first half of next year.
