Midland Station to relocate to improve connectivity

The Western Australian Government has opened a six week request for tender process for the rail component of the $69 million METRONET Denny Avenue level crossing removal project.

Perth’s Midland Station will be relocated closer to the town centre and health campus after 50 years since its opening.

The move to relocate supports DevelopmentWA’s Midland Project and helps to maintain the railway’s central role to work and community life.

Midland Station will be relocated between Helena and Cale Streets and the existing infrastructure will be replaced with a modern facility.

The new station will include three platforms, with two long enough to cater for six-car trains and a third for regional trains.

Connections for commuters and cyclists will be improved in the area with a new bus interchange, multi-level passenger car park, bicycle parking facilities and a shared path.

The project will include closing the Helena Street level crossing and replacing it with a new crossing at Cale Street, subject to stakeholder consultation.

Bellevue Depot will also be connected to the line as it is extended, this will be where the new C-series rail cars will be built.

Plans will now move into final design and layout details. The Project Definition Plan is expected to be complete mid-2020.

METRONET is calling for input from the community in the design process and will be hosting shopping centre pop ups and a drop in session in late January and early February.
