Since I don't have broadband, can someone use Google Earth and get a picture of the Gloucester Park/WACA/Police HQ/Old MTT Terminus to see how much land would be available. The problem I see arising is that property like that so close to the CBD and on the foreshore is going to be worth a squillion dollars eventually.

Subiaco residents already complain about the noise and there is no way in hell that the Council is going to give permission for more night events, which I think would be necessary to make a large stadium viable. Claremont residents are the same and I don't know if you have ever tried to park around thta area during the Royal Show, but parking is an issue.

We need to up the ante and try to get the Commonwealth Games to Perth, this would see the Federal Gov chucking some dollars our way to help build the facilities.

The problem is Subi council won't let much construction on that side because it will keep the houses in permenant shade and thier plants won't grow. (Good old Tony Costa strikes again!)


:) That's as bad as residents near my school complaining that the school bell rang during Oprah... :roll:


The best for me is still curtains fade during daylight saving so dont vote for it :shock:

i dont think we can overlook the atmosphere in and around subi on match day.a bigger 3 tier stand and less space sucked up by corporate area's may get us 55000 seats and although not enough ,it may just be good enough IMO
subi the home of footy
belmont the home of losing shit loads of money at burswood

it may be enough for TV ...they dont want bigger stadiums
they want small packed ones as compared to half empty big ones

better for their coverage
and more poeple are forced to stay home and watch cause they cant get to games

That really isn't practical. Roberts Road is a major arterial link to the western suburbs (Daglish/Jolimont/Floreat/Mt Claremont/Swanbourne), to cut that would make traffic flow an utter nightmare for the whole western suburbs area. The idiocy of speed bumps on Hay Street was bad enough, but closing Roberts Road would require Hay Street to be two way through Subi..... That's the stuff of nightmares traffic wise (anyone who remembers the old Subiaco subway would know what I mean)

Certainly looks like enough land on both those sites to host the development of a major sporting complex.

Okay, this is going to seem a little selfish and perhaps even stoopid, but for anyone who's been to Mount Lawley and seen Hamer Park the oval I used to play footy on is actually rumoured to be similar in dimensions to Subiaco as well as having an attatched club house and bowls club.
The best part about a move to Mount Lawley is the 2 other ovals attatched to it, so by plonking our new stadium in the middle we would be allowed planty of room for the stadium and car parks.
The cricket club has a mint little area for post-match functions and I'm not sure if the lady who did it is still there, but it used to be 50 cents for a mean cup of pea and ham soup, as opposed to a 7 dollar hot dog which has died of thirst.
The buses run up and down Fitzgerald which is two blocks on one side and North Street which runs down the other side and Central which is the entrance to the main oval. Plus the traino is only a dozen blocks or less away, and if I can walk that half drunk and carrying 20 showbags then a bunch of rabid Eagles fans can do it too.
The only downside to my plan is it means allowing Dockers supporters into the neighbourhood. Hmmmm.
But yeah, even the drinking venues for the area are covered, there's the Civic, the Inglewood, The Flying Scotsman the Queens, Liquorland, Sip n Save and my house!
If anyone can use that bird's eye thing again to bring up the area I'm talking about; it's in between the round about on Second Ave and the High School. Cheers.

3km's straight line from the CBD and the site is around 565 x 180

you da man Beasty.
Tell me do your dimensions incorporate the two ovals above and to the right of Hamer as well as the tree covered areas and the bowls club in between the white UWA buildings and the main oval?
i really wanna get the ball rolling on this one because my place is 150 paces from the park! :twisted:

I'm all for tearing down Trinity College if it means a new stadium. Hey, I'm all for tearing the place down regardless.

Bloody Trinity and their "year 13" program. You can only pass off 22 year olds in your First 8 for so long....

What do you reckon Lewie, use the bowls club area and the tree covered areas as car parks, decent circulation of public transport with Morley and Perth being on either side. The traino isn't too far and you'd have a fairly impressive looking stadium with lots of good places for before and after the game?
No one way streets either and a pleasant neighbourhood to boot.
Thanks for the marvelous work again Mr Beast.
