The proposed site for the major new stadium at Burswood.

Football stadium bill hits $1.2 billion

The state government is expecting patrons to get to its new multi-purpose stadium at Burswood on their own two feet or via bus or train - but not by car - under a public transport plan that takes the total project cost past $1.2 billion.

This project is an excessive and ill-timed expense that WA could well do without, given the many other major developments currently under way. The cost of the transport plan alone shows that the location chosen for the new stadium is far from optimal.

I do not believe the Tax Payers of WA should have to pay for this stadium - and I am a football fan. The AFL should foot the bill if they want a new stadium.

Sorry guys this is a total waste of our money. In a time where recreation organisations are struggling for funds to keep going, national parks have had their funds cut, civil servants have lost their jobs - we simply cannot afford this stadium - get your priorities right and fund essential services and recreation and parks that to more for physical activity, well being and health than a foothold stadium.
