We are revitalising Bendigo and Eaglehawk stations to provide better access for people of all abilities.
At Bendigo Station we have installed a new pedestrian bridge including ramps, lifts and stairs to improve access between platforms. The station's waiting room will also be upgraded.
At Eaglehawk Station we have upgraded the car park, improved the forecourt and built new footpaths to make it easier and safer to move through the precinct.
In the 2016-2017 Victorian State Budget, the Victorian Government committed $15.8 million to upgrade Bendigo and Eaglehawk stations.
VicTrack is leading the delivery of the station upgrades and engaged Downer Group to build Bendigo Station’s new pedestrian bridge and carry out the Eaglehawk Station upgrades.
We recognise the unique heritage features of both Bendigo and Eaglehawk stations and we are ensuring these features are protected.
Both the Bendigo and Eaglehawk station upgrade packages will be completed in 2020 and are in line with the City of Greater Bendigo’s integrated transport and land use strategy Connecting Greater Bendigo, the Bendigo Station Improvement Plan and the Eaglehawk Station Precinct Master Plan.
