After more than 50 years, Midland Station will have a new home bringing it closer to the heart of the Midland Town Centre. The new station location will improve connections to Midland Gate Shopping Centre and Midland Health Campus, while maintaining the railway’s central role to enhance work opportunities and community life in the area.
The project supports Midland’s status as a Strategic Metropolitan Centre and strongly aligns with the program of urban renewal, being led by DevelopmentWA, to transform Midland into a contemporary urban centre.
The project will connect the passenger rail network to the new Bellevue Railcar Manufacturing and Assembly Facility, which will bring significant new employment to Midland.
At the commencement of passenger services, the new Midland Station is expected to have 3,300 daily boarding’s, growing to 3,700 in 2031.
The Noongar place name for Midland is Mandjanup (Marn-jarn-up) and the narrative is ‘the place where meetings take place for trade and exchange – an important meeting place’.
