As part of a Victorian Government initiative to revitalise the Broadmeadows Metropolitan Activity Centre, we are upgrading the Broadmeadows Station precinct to make it safer and easier to access for commuters and pedestrians.
The Broadmeadows Railway Station Upgrade Program will improve connectivity and facilities at the station, and includes:
- building a new northern entrance to Platform 2 with four myki readers
- revamping the toilets
- refreshing the existing pedestrian underpass.
The underpass will be upgraded with LED lights, painting, resurfacing of the pavement and new security mirrors.
As part of the upgrade, we have also improved the intersection at Dimboola Road and Pasco Vale Road. This includes closure of the slip-way and subsequent creation of a turning lane to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety.
Landscaping has also been carried out to make the precinct more inviting.
Timing of works
Works are in their final stages and will be completed in October 2018.
Upgrades to the station toilets and the removal of the slip lane on Dimboola Road into Pascoe Vale Road is complete.
We are working with project partners and stakeholders including Metro Trains Melbourne, Public Transport Victoria, DELWP and Hume City Council, to minimise the impacts of works on commuters and people who work in the precinct.
Train services from Broadmeadows station are not impacted by this upgrade.
