Work will begin in coming months to upgrade the communications and electrical systems at Midland Station. The project will involve the replacement and consolidation of cabling throughout the station, to maintain safety, improve maintenance access, and extend the life of existing assets.
Midland Station will remain fully operational during construction, with minimal impact to passengers anticipated. Access to the station kiosk will be maintained throughout the project, while the Transwa ticketing office located in the station foyer will be temporarily moved to the eastern end of the platform.
Early work is expected to start in late 2018, with construction to continue for around six months.
Planning is also continuing on the METRONET Midland Station Project. The current rewiring works are not part of the Midland Station Project.
