PERTH STADIUM — PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
Hon PETER COLLIER
to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:
I refer to the government's decision to abandon the construction contract of the Perth Stadium footbridge.
(1) What alterations to the original contract with York Rizzani Joint Venture has the government sought to make since coming to office?
(2) On what date or dates were these requested alterations made?
(3) What are the disputes between the York Rizzani Joint Venture and its Malaysian subcontractor?
(4) When was the minister given advice that the original contract could not be fulfilled?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON
I thank the Leader of the Opposition for the question.
(1)–(2) The government has not abandoned the construction contract for the Perth Stadium footbridge. York Rizzani Joint Venture has recently terminated its subcontract with BES–Toyota Tsusho Joint Venture. As a result, agreement has been reached with York Rizzani Joint Venture to enter into a varied contract for the balance of the project work.
(3) The subcontract was terminated by YRJV for non‑performance. The details of the matters in dispute are a commercial matter between YRJV and its subcontractor, and the state has no liability arising from that decision.
(4) Advice that original time lines could not be fulfilled was first given in October 2016.
