Road and Rail Minor Works Program

On behalf of the Victorian Government we are delivering a state-wide upgrade of regional stations, bus stops and bus interchanges, which will provide improved facilities for public transport users.

The project responds to priorities under the Regional Network Development Plan that was kick-started by the Victorian Government’s $1.3 billion investment in regional public transport in the 2016-17 Budget.

The Road and Rail Minor Works Program will deliver additional commuter car park spaces, new bus shelters, improved station amenities and bus interchanges, new passenger information displays, and new bike parking facilities across the regions below.

Works are kicking off across Victoria during March and April 2018, and the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. For updates on your region select the tab below.
