Major construction works are now underway on the METRONET New Midland Station in Western Australia which will replace the ageing station infrastructure with a modern facility.

The project will build a modern, three-platform station between Helena and Cale streets, bringing it closer to the heart of Midland’s town centre and improving connectivity to Midland Gate Shopping Centre and Midland Health Campus. The new station will include a 12-stand bus interchange, a multi-storey car park with more than 800 parking bays, and secure bike parking.

Initial work will concentrate on building the car park, which has necessitated the closure of the western end of the station’s existing passenger car park. The car park on Railway Parade to the east of Helena Street will also close to facilitate construction of the new station.

The project is being delivered by the Midland Junction Alliance McConnell Dowell Constructors, Georgiou Group, Arcadis Australia Pacific and BG&E.

Once rail services are moved to the new station – expected to occur in early 2025 – the existing 55-year-old station will be decommissioned and demolished.

WA Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said the project will be an “exciting addition” to the future of public transport in the region.

“This new state-of-the-art facility will bring more than just a better public transport experience to local commuters – it will create better connections with key services like Midland Health Campus and Midland Gate, and will help Midland to develop into a thriving commercial and residential centre,” Saffioti said.

The $330 million New Midland Station project is jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian Governments.
