Major construction on the second platform at Traralgon Station as part of the Gippsland Line Upgrade is complete, with station precinct works to be finished in the coming months.

A new pedestrian overpass is open, featuring a bright, light interior and clad to protect users from the weather, with four lifts and stairs making it accessible and safe for all.

The second platform has been rebuilt to allow for more frequent and reliable services, featuring seating and a new canopy. Trains will begin using the second platform on completion of the project.

The rebuilt second platform and the new pedestrian overpass are designed to reflect the station precinct heritage, with materials from the old platform being re-used throughout the precinct.

The bus interchange has been relocated to provide more seating, shelter and shade.

Artwork by local artist Marilyn Fenton has been sandblasted into the station’s new forecourt using traditional Gunaikurnai line patterns depicting men and women, travel, meeting and the five Gunaikurnai clans.
