Perth stadium has reportedly finished its pre constructions works six weeks ahead of schedule. According to the premier of Western Australia
“The work involved the compaction of nine hectares across key areas of the site and installation of 55,459 wick drains to provide a drainage path for groundwater up to the surface. More than 740,000 tonnes of sand surcharge was then placed across the site. The sand will be left to settle for the next six to nine months, ensuring optimal ground conditions ahead of the start of construction.”
Evaluation of the design proposals continues.
