Contract awarded for Midland makeover

The Midland Junction Alliance has been awarded the $246.7 million contract to design and build the METRONET New Midland Station in Perth.

The Alliance – made up of 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 the main station building, the project will include a 12-stand bus interchange, a new multi-storey car park with more than 600 parking bays, a north-south pedestrian overpass, passenger toilets, lifts, stairs, a kiosk and secure parking for 96 bicycles.

The station’s new location brings it closer to the heart of the Midland Town Centre, improving accessibility between the station and important sites such as the Midland Health Centre and Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

Early works on the project, which is jointly funded by the Federal and Western Australian governments, will commence later this year.
