A Glimpse at the Northbridge Link Project

The Northbridge Link project will close the gap between Perth and Northbridge with a diverse mix of different zones. Check out the picture below, click on it to enlarge and see what is planned for Perth. 

Here's a few things to look forward to from the project:

City Square – Multi functional public space to accommodate up to 6,000 people for major events and public gatherings. City Square will feature alfresco dining, landscaping, water features, dramatic lighting, public art and street stalls.

Queens Square – The area will provide all the convenience of a local shopping centre in the middle of the city, catering to the daily needs of local residents.

Kings Square – The new street connection will emphasise the pedestrian friendly character of the area, with bars, restaurants and late-closing shops dotted around.

Milligan Plaza – A pedestrian land bridge will provide an elevated view to Russell Square, the Perth Arena and Wellington Street, featuring elegant landscaping with trees, gardens and water features.

Perth Arena – Under construction by the WA State Government  the $500 million, 15,500 seat multi-purpose venue will cater to concerts, sporting and special events. A generous external plaza will accommodate other outdoor public events.

Today we asked Premier Colin Barnett whether anything is happening with the redevelopment of the East Perth Power Station and he said, "No. It continues to be a problem, there have been some informal discussions with private interests to make use of it. But, nothing has come to fruition yet."
