We are upgrading Waurn Ponds Station as part of the staged upgrade of the Geelong Line.
A new platform and extra track at Waurn Ponds Station will allow trains to pass each other in this section, enabling more Geelong services to be extended to and from Waurn Ponds and helping to improve service reliability.
Station users will have new and improved car parking and an accessible overpass linking both platforms.
The Waurn Ponds Station upgrade includes:
Construction is now underway on the Waurn Ponds Station upgrade.
The first section of the car park upgrade is open, featuring more than 200 new and upgrades spaces. Passengers have increased parking capacity at the station, providing more options for locals driving to catch a train at Waurn Ponds.
We’ve opened two new entrances to the car park, off Sugargum Drive and on Rossack Drive.
Construction works on the new platform, duplicated track and accessible overpass are continuing, to help deliver more services to and from Waurn Ponds Station.
Construction on the station upgrade is targeted for completion in late 2021.
In early 2019 we spoke to the local community about concept designs for the Waurn Ponds Station upgrade.
The community also gave us feedback on the additional track and new platform, CCTV and lighting, and car park improvements at Waurn Ponds Station.
The responses provided were considered in the planning and design of the upgrade for the Waurn Ponds Station upgrade.
