Following the release of the Request for Proposal to market, the METRONET Midland Station development marks a new milestone with the release of new concept designs and the Project Definition Plan (PDP). 

The new modern station between Helena and Cale streets will have a contemporary design featuring three platforms that can cater up to six cars, a public-accessible pedestrian overpass that links to both sides of the railway and green community spaces. 

The PDP highlights how the new station is going to be integrated with the surrounding Midland town centre, including DevelopmentWA’s METRONET East-Midland Project. 

The contract for build the new Midland Station is anticipated to be awarded in mid-2021. 

“All along the Morrison Government has sad that METRONET will re-shape Perth and today’s concept designs show us how that transformation will take place. 

“It also means jobs right now and critical, targeted infrastructure for generations to come,” Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said.

The Midland Station project will include: 

  • Relocating Midland Station to the east of its existing location and demolition of the existing Midland Station building 
  • New 12-stand bus interchange and multi-storey car park with more than 600 bays at the location of the former Midland Station 
  • Cale Street level crossing by extending the existing Cale Street south to Yelverton Drive 
  • Closing Helena Street level crossing to create new public spaces and safe connections between the bus interchange and station 
  • A 24/7 publicly accessible pedestrian overpass to connect the north and south sides of the rail corridor and provide access to all platforms during station uring station operations 
  • More than 1-kilometre Principal Shared Path (PSP) along the northern side of the rail corridor, connecting to the existing cycle network at Morrison Road and Lloyd Street 
  • 1.7 kilometres of new track connecting into the new Bellevue Depot 

“The new Midland Station will be modern, practical and easy to access, connecting well with surrounding businesses, the Midland health campus and homes. 

“The new station will also link to METRONET’s Bellevue Depot, making it the first landmark our brand new C-Series trains will pass through on their way to regular service on the network,” Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said. 

 

According to Federal Member for Hasluck Ken Wyatt AM MP, the new station is set to make a significant difference for locals. 

“The new station will make it easier for people from the hills and foothills to access the rail line. 

“This will make a big difference for all members of our community, especially those who use public transport to get to work or school,” Mr Wyatt said. 

The new Midland Station is going to replace the existing 52-year-old station with a more modern facility that is better integrated with the surrounding area and is closer to Midland Gate Shopping Centre as well as Midland Health Campus. 

“This new station will much better link Midland with the civic precinct, including Midland Gate Shopping Centre, the Hospital and Curtin University’s Midland campus. 

“Midland will have a modern new station together with new community forecourts and options for future mixed-use developments,” State Member for Midland Michelle Roberts said.
