We are upgrading Morwell Station as part of the Gippsland Line Upgrade.
The upgrade features a second platform to enable more frequent and reliable services, and accessibility and amenity improvements for better passenger journeys.
New stairs will link the pedestrian underpass to the new platform entry, and an upgraded underpass ramp will improve accessibility.
Staggering the platforms will minimise the upgraded station’s impact to Legacy Place and the car parking area, and better connect the station with the existing bus interchange.
The new platform will have a generous canopy over the entrance, an enclosed waiting room with seating, and be equipped with seating located along its entire length.
Community feedback helped shape the final station designs with dozens of community groups and station users providing feedback through a user-centred design process, resulting in 196 design recommendations.
We sought advice from heritage and environmental experts to provide technical feedback on designs. Celebrating local heritage, improving user journey/experience, improved safety and function and accessibility were key themes highlighted by the community.
Major construction at Morwell Station is targeted for completion in late 2022.
