Midland railway station is the terminus of the Midland line in Perth. Western Australia. It is operated by Transperth serving the suburb of Midland.

History[edit]

Midland station was opened on 8 October 1968 by Minister for Transport & Railways Ray O'Connor as a replacement for Midland Junction station when the main Eastern Railway was being converted to dual gauge.[1][2]

The Public Transport Authority currently has plans for the crucial upgrade of the current Midland station.[3]

The Midland Redevelopment Authority (MRA) is also advocating the relocation of the station east to be line with Cale Street, the site of the original Midland Junction station.[4][5] The MRA is also seeking an extension of the Midland line to Bellevue, which would take on a primarily park and ride function, to allow for land around Midland station to be redeveloped.

Platforms & services[edit]

The station has a single through standard gauge side platform served by Transwa's Prospector and AvonLink services, and Great Southern Rail's Indian Pacific and two narrow gauge bay platforms used by Transperth Midland line services.
