We are partnering with developer Neometro to redevelop the Jewell Station precinct in Brunswick, to make the best use of underutilised transport land at the station only five kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD.
Under the plans, existing derelict buildings on VicTrack-owned land will make way for two eight storey mixed-use buildings, containing ground floor retail and 121 one, two and three bedroom apartments.
Part of the proceeds from the development will fund our improvements to the station forecourt and public realm.
The historic Jewell Station building will form the centrepiece of the revamped station forecourt, featuring a community garden area and artistic and cultural spaces for the community to enjoy.
A new ramp and stairs will improve access to the station, there will be increased bike parking, and the Upfield bike path will be upgraded within the precinct.
Construction underway - car park closure and shared user path diversion
Construction is underway on the project.
The Jewell Station commuter car park is permanently closed, and the Upfield shared user path is diverted via Barkly Street, Black Street and Wilson Avenue.
The diversion is expected to be in place until the first phase of construction is complete, in mid-2019.
Pedestrians should allow an extra five minutes to access the city-bound platform from Barkly Street, or walk via the western side of the station precinct. Cyclists should allow extra time to pass through the precinct.
For your own safety, please follow the signs. For more information, please see the disruptions poster.
