App-reciate new station
FANS looking forward to heading to Perth Stadium in 2018 can now see what the $40 million train station will look like thanks to a new smartphone app.
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 Perth Stadium, including the station, a pedestrian bridge, roadworks and bus stands, would create up to 1350 direct jobs.
Perth Stadium Station transport project will cost about $100 million with $40 million for the station itself and $60 million for supporting infrastructure. ARMADALE and Thornlie train lines will be hit with a major nine-day shut down from July 1 to accommodate the transport plan for Perth Stadium.
The train blackout will take place during school holidays until July 10.
As part of the $358 million integrated transport plan, a second set of tracks will be constructed alongside the Armadale Line.
Train services will be transferred across to this new section of line later in the year.
The majority of the train line disruptions have been scheduled for weekends and evenings to reduce impact on commuters.

As Perth Stadium is constructed, people can now see what the train station will look like.
