METRONET – Midland Station preferred proponent announced

Midland Junction Alliance (McConnell Dowell Constructors, Georgiou Group, Arcadis Australia and BG&E) has been chosen to deliver the new METRONET Midland Station.

The project includes decommissioning and demolishing the existing 53-year-old train station and the design and construction of a new facility between Helena and Cale streets.

The design will incorporate three platforms catering for up to six-cars, a publicly accessible pedestrian overpass connecting both sides of the railway, a bus interchange and cycling facilities.

The station is expected to have 3,300 daily boardings, with a projected growth of 3,700 in 2031. Passengers will now have a 25-minute, two-zone journey to the Perth CBD.

The project which is jointly funded by the Australian and Western Australian governments, with the Australian Government committing $82.5 million is expected to be awarded later this year.

Paul Fletcher , Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts stated that the Morrison Govt is moving forward with delivering infrastructure projects that improve public transport for communities across Australia, making it easier to move around capital cities and access retail and commercial precincts. This is one of the many major projects to receive funding from the Morrison Government as part of its record $110 billion, 10-year infrastructure investment pipeline, which is helping to drive Australia’s world-leading economic recovery.

WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti also mentioned that the replacement of the Midland Station was a commitment made by the McGowan Govt during election. Which has now reached a key milestone in the project today with the selection of it’s preferred proponent.

The new station is expected to bring an economic, social and environmental boost to the Midland city centre, while supporting local jobs during construction.

The train service from Midland to Perth is vital in ensuring the region is connected and accessible for both local residents and businesses
