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 face 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 METRONET 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.
“The Morrison Government has committed $3.3 billion to METRONET projects – including $157.5 million for the new Midland Station – which will play an important role in supporting the growth of Perth.
“Working in close partnership with the WA Government, we are getting on with the job of delivering critical infrastructure projects that improve public transport connections and congestion for communities across Perth, and provide a boost to local jobs and the economy” said Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP.
