Contract awarded for new Midland Station
The Midland Junction Alliance has been awarded a $246.7 million contract to design and construct the new Midland Station.
The Alliance - McConnell Dowell Constructors, Georgiou Group, Arcadis Australia, and BG&E - will design and build the new three-platform station between Helena and Cale streets.
The contract also includes decommissioning and demolishing the existing 53-year-old station.
As well as building the main station building, the project will include a 12-stand bus interchange, a new multi-storey car park with more than 600 bays, a north-south pedestrian overpass, passenger toilets, eight lifts, stairs, a kiosk and secure parking for 96 bicycles.
The new location brings the station closer to the Midland CBD, improving access between the station and important sites such as the Midland Health Centre and Midland Gate Shopping Centre.
The new station is expected to initially see 3,300 passenger boardings a day, growing to 3,700 by 2031.
Early work on the project, which is jointly funded by the Australian and WA governments on a 50:50 basis, is due to start later this year.
