Construction of the 60,000 seat new Perth Stadium reached another important milestone today when the first concrete slab on the ground level was poured.

Today’s pour is one of many that will be undertaken over the next 13 months as the five-tiered Stadium structure is constructed. This concrete, along with more than 2,300 concrete piles, will provide the necessary structural support.

The Minister for Sport and Recreation, Mia Davies was on site to provide the final finish to the first slab and was delighted to celebrate another important milestone for the project.

Across the Burswood Peninsula site construction remains on schedule with a current workforce of approximately 100. The workforce will peak in mid-2016 and during the three year construction phase approximately 5,700 are expected to be involved in the project.
