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.
At Eaglehawk Station, we are extending the platform, installing shelters, upgrading the car park and creating 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 has engaged Downer Group to build Bendigo Station’s new pedestrian bridge and carry out the Eaglehawk Station upgrade.
We recognise the unique heritage features of both Bendigo and Eaglehawk stations and we will ensure these features are protected as we deliver these important upgrades.
Both the Bendigo and Eaglehawk station upgrade packages will be completed in 2019 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.
