The Geelong Train Station is being upgraded as part of the Geelong City Deal, to improve safety and amenities to support commuters and visitors of the station.
The project will include new infrastructure such as heritage style seating, skylight replacement, passenger information and directional signage, and new ticketing infrastructure (myki).
CCTV cameras throughout the platform and waiting areas will be upgraded, improving safety at the station.
Forty-nine lights have already been replaced with brighter and more energy efficient LED lights throughout the car park and bus canopy, improving safety for passengers and visitors while also reducing carbon emissions by up to 50 per cent.
The upgrade will enhance the experience and aesthetics at the station, while respecting existing heritage infrastructure under the supervision of Heritage Victoria.
The project team is working with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation (WTOAC) to introduce local culture into the design of the infrastructure upgrades. WTOAC culture will be acknowledged through the design of the additional seating on the platforms and waiting areas, complementing existing heritage seating.
This project will be delivered over 18 months, with early works completed in the station car parks and bus interchange in May 2021, and the main upgrades expected to be completed by mid-2022.
These works are not expected to impact V/Line with most work to take place during off-peak times and a planned maintenance period.
