Project description

Perth’s new Stadium Station Complex includes the Stadium Station and significant rail works, including infrastructure to enable Transperth to store up to 117 rail cars at Burswood. Monford provided construction services and site management for the project. As the project is located on a contaminated site, there was asbestos, acid sulphate soils and other contaminants to contend with, and strict environmental controls and monitoring to adhere to. Monford’s site management team used tablets to complete online ITPs, ITRs and HSE inspections to improve efficiency and compliance.
