Upgrading our stations and boosting Victorian jobs
The Victorian Government is upgrading 16 train stations across the state – supporting local jobs through the coronavirus pandemic and improving the public transport network for everyone that relies on it.
The $24 million upgrades are a key part of the Government's $328.4 million investment in public transport and roads maintenance through its $2.7 billion Building Works program.
Eleven metropolitan stations – including Heathmont, Frankston, Melton and Moonee Ponds – will be upgraded as part of the investment, along with five regional stations including Broadford, North Shore and Lara.
The upgrades include new passenger information screens, public address equipment and disability shelters, as well as extra car parks, toilet facilities and bike parking racks.
They will make the stations and public transport network safer and more accessible, and respond to feedback from passengers about how stations can be improved.
The improvements will also boost economic activity to suburbs and regional towns to support local recovery efforts and keep Victoria moving as the state recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.
