Midland Station

New Midland Station



Relocating Midland Station between Helena and Cale streets maintains the railway’s central role to work and community life in the area.

The project is also an opportunity to replace ageing infrastructure with a modern facility, allow a connection to the Bellevue Depot and assembly facility and support safe movements through the area.

Relocating the station has been discussed for many years, as part of DevelopmentWA's Midland Project, and its new location better integrates with the area, bringing it closer to the Midland Gate Shopping Centre and Midland Health Campus.

A Project Definition Plan is underway, with key stakeholder engagement to ensure the Midland Station Project integrates with the community and to provide well-designed places that support walking, cycling and public transport. This is expected to be completed in mid-2020.


Project Features

Scoping and concept designs for the new Midland Station project, which includes:

  • Building a new station between Helena and Cale streets with two platform faces long enough for six railcar trains, and a third platform for regional passenger trains
  • Demolishing the existing Midland Station at Helena Street and replacing with a new bus interchange and multi-level passenger car park
  • Bicycle parking facilities and shared path connections
  • Helena Street level crossing to close, with new crossing planned at Cale Street
  • Extending the electrified rail line to the new Bellevue Depot

The Helena Street level crossing will close as growth in freight rail operations as well as the trains travelling to the new station would mean that, if it remained open, the boom gates would be down for significant periods of time during peak periods.

A new crossing is planned at Cale Street, which will have fewer trains operating through it and less closure time and impacts on local connectivity.


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.

While the infrastructure location is confirmed, there are currently no designs for the new station.

The community are encouraged to complete an online survey before Monday, 10 Feb to have their say on what is important to them for the new Midland Station. The feedback will help inform the design process.

Extension to Bellevue

The options analysis found that staging the extension to Bellevue after the new Midland Station is complete not only presents the best opportunity to manage the existing transport constraints in the Midland city centre but will also deliver the best land use outcomes.

In the meantime, work will continue in planning for a future rail extension to Bellevue or beyond.
