Bankwest Stadium has been jointly named Greater Western Sydney’s premier infrastructure Project of the Year for 2019 at the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue’s Boomtown Property and Infrastructure Awards held last night.
In fine recognition for the Stadium that has welcomed more than 500,000 fans through the gates since its opening in April 2019, the Project of the Year award acknowledges completed (or near completed) major projects over the past 12 months that have, or will, significantly contribute to the sustainable growth of Greater Western Sydney.
Bankwest Stadium shared the award with Sydney Metro North West, Australia’s first fully automated passenger railway project. Sydney Metro North West, which includes eight new railway stations, five upgraded stations and 4000 commuter car parking spaces, has catalysed the development of a range of new precincts throughout the north-west and the Hills District
The Project of the Year Award was received by the CEO of Venues NSW, Mr Paul Doorn. Bankwest Stadium is owned by Venues NSW, on behalf of the NSW Government.
Bankwest Stadium was also announced as the Outstanding Sports & Major Events Project for 2019 and was one of 9 Category Winners vying for the ultimate prize of 2019 Project of the Year.
