We designed and delivered two new stations at Epsom and Waurn Ponds, which opened in October 2014 and give thousands of regional commuters easier access to the rail network.
The projects, delivered on behalf of Public Transport Victoria (PTV) included a $7 million station at Epsom, along with enhancement works at Eaglehawk Station, and the $15 million Waurn Ponds Station, on the Geelong line.
Waurn Ponds was delivered beyond its original scope and completed as a premium station, with parking for 390 vehicles as well as 200 extra gravel spaces. A new substation for station power supply was also added to the scope.
The station includes a heated and air conditioned station building with fully enclosed waiting room and booking office, along with information displays and provision for a future 60m platform extension. Through the project, we delivered all associated track works and a new computer based signalling extension from Marshall Station.
Epsom Station has 100 car parking spaces and bike hoops. We delivered all necessary track works to accommodate the new station, as well as lighting, ticketing, landscaping, and additional signalling. We also added a bus bay at Station Street, along with a disability access compliant ramp at Eaglehawk Station and a train driver’s footpath.
Delivered on time and budget without disruptions to V/Line services and without incident or injury, the project was recognised by the Australian Institute of Building at the Professional Excellence in Building Awards for 2015.
