To deliver this exciting new precinct, the majority of ageing infrastructure at Subiaco Oval needs to be demolished and removed. Demolition activities are now under way and we will have regular updates to bring you the highlights. For the latest look inside the site, watch the video below or view some images here.
The stadium demolition is a major project, taking place across 13 carefully-planned zones. The stadium is being dismantled gradually, to minimise the disruption for surrounding residents and businesses. The project has management plans in place to reduce the impact of dust, noise and vibrations and to preserve the areas heritage values.
The process to remove the grandstands is happening via mechanical demolition, which involves excavators with hydraulic pulverisers that can bite through steel and concrete.
Materials are being broken into large chunks and transported by truck to recycling facilities. This is the safest method for demolition; it also ensures maximum recycling opportunities and minimum impact on the environment and community.
We’re expecting the majority of works to be completed in time for the opening of Bob Hawke College in February 2020.
For more information on the demolition visit the project website.
If you have questions about the works, call our 24-hour project information line on 1800 430 844 or send us an email.
During February and March 2019 we sought feedback from the community on the Vision Concept for Subi East. The Vision Concept was an early representation of stakeholder and community feedback received throughout 2018. The community was then asked to provide further feedback on the Vision Concept. A total of 505 comments were received throughout the engagement period and more than 6,000 visitors viewed the site. The feedback received has been collated into a report which summarises the issues raised. A summary can be viewed here, or a full copy of the report can be viewed here.
Later in 2019, master planning for the future of the site will commence. There will be a number of opportunities for the community to be involved in the master planning phase. For more information click here.
