New Midland Station Community Reference Group
Community Reference Group (CRG) nominations have now closed. We would like to thank the 46 community members and businesses who nominated to be part of the new Midland Station group.
The team is now busy assessing all nominations against the criteria. The CRG will be made up of a diverse group of residents, business owners, and community group representatives within the project area.
The CRG is expected to have eight members. All nominees will be advised of the outcome in late-May.
The New Midland Station Project maintains the railway’s central role to work and community life in the area with modern facilities that integrate into the area.
In January we asked the community what they would like to see at the new Midland Station.
197 of you gave us your feedback through our online survey, which will now be used to help inform the design process.
Key findings from the survey included:
- Nearly half of you want to see a station that has combination of modern and heritage design elements
- Safety, parking and integration with the local area are the top three things that you think are important for the new station
- Almost half of you think that rail and rail history should be reflected in the public art at the new station
