Have your say on new Sunshine Station designs
New concept designs have been unveiled to show how key areas along the Melbourne Airport Rail route might look, including upgrades to support Sunshine Station’s development into a transport superhub.
We’re now inviting public feedback on scope details and concept designs at Sunshine and other locations including Albion and the Western Ring Road (M80).
A new concourse at Sunshine Station will provide an accessible connection point at either end of the platforms and double the amount of lifts available, with other features of the design including extra ticketing gates, platform extensions and better weather protection.
The pipeline of major rail investments for the west – including the Metro Tunnel, Melbourne Airport Rail, Suburban Rail Loop and Western Rail Plan – will all contribute to Sunshine Station’s development into a transport superhub.
This means better facilities, more trains and more travel options in a turn-up-and-go-style timetable, with services available to Melbourne Airport, Victoria’s western regions, Southern Cross via Footscray, and Melbourne’s CBD through the new Metro Tunnel.
To maximise the benefits these major projects will bring to Sunshine, the Department of Transport is developing a Sunshine Station Masterplan, which will look at requirements for future investment and opportunities around Sunshine Station. This includes considering the plans of key stakeholders such as the local council and other transport agencies.
