The dangerous and congested 5-way roundabout at Fyans Street in South Geelong will soon be a thing of the past, with new designs revealing the removal of the roundabout and level crossing as part of the South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Duplication.
Fyans Street will extend through to Breakwater Road, with an elevated rail bridge to replace the level crossing and roundabout. The new design will see traffic flow and safety improved for more than 17,000 vehicles that use the road each day.
The new design responds to community feedback calling for greater separation between the Carr Street residential area and the industrial area south of Fyans Street.
The community will benefit from a new public open space underneath and around the rail bridge with increased space for recreation, landscaping, and urban design opportunities as well as a new shared user path along Carr Street linking pedestrians and cyclists to the Bellarine Rail Trail.
New designs for the South Geelong Station upgrade have also been released showing a reconfigured car park, to make the station safer and more accessible for passengers.
The station will feature a new second platform, rebuilt station building and forecourts, an accessible pedestrian overpass, increased shelter and better wayfinding.
The main entrance to the existing platform will feature an architecturally designed canopy over the new station building.
Passengers will be able to access the station from a new entrance on Carr Street, connecting to the second platform.
Members of the community are being asked to provide feedback on the updated designs to help inform the final designs for the project, with new designs for upgrades to Marshall Station and the level crossing removal at Surf Coast Highway to be released in the coming weeks.
