New Midland Station Project construction update

  • 1 July 2024


Cale Street level crossing

With the Cale Street level crossing expected to open on 12 July 2024, the final touches are being delivered to ensure everything is set for opening day. Works on the level crossing commenced in August 2023 and has included utilities relocation, removing redundant rail lines and road construction. The intersection of Railway Parade and Cale Street re-opened on 3 May 2024 after being closed for four months.

Permanent signage has recently been installed and line marking works have started. Next up are the installation of the signals, boom gates and the pedestrian crossing.   

Multi-storey car park

The multi-storey car park is now visible across Midland. The concrete slabs for level one, two and three have been completed. Concrete pouring on level four is ongoing, with a scheduled completion in August. When the top (level four) slab is in place, work will continue with services fit out, including electrical, security, lighting and fire protection. Later this year work on the facade will commence. The multi-storey car park is expected to open in the coming months.

New Midland station

Meanwhile, concrete pours are also being carried out at the new station building on the corner of Railway Parade and Helena Street following foundation works which started early this year.

Simultaneous work at the train drivers’ sign on building on the corner of Yelverton Drive and Helena Street south of the rail line will continue throughout 2024. This work on both sides of the rail line will pave the way for construction of the 24/7 pedestrian walkway which will allow access to the north and south.
