We are upgrading Traralgon Station as part of the Gippsland Line Upgrade.
The upgrade will feature a second platform to enable more frequent and reliable services, and a new accessible pedestrian overpass and amenity improvements for better passenger journeys.
The overpass - which will be glazed to afford weather protection for comfort and have a bright, light interior - will be serviced by stairs and four lifts, to be accessible for all.
The design of the new pedestrian overpass will reflect the heritage elements of the station precinct.
The rebuilt second platform – featuring seating and a new canopy – has been designed to respect the heritage elements of the station building.
Materials from the old platform will be repurposed throughout the station complex.
The bus interchange will be relocated to better align with the Traralgon Station Precinct Masterplan, enabling more seating, shelter and shade to be included in the new landscaped forecourt.
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 Traralgon Station is targeted for completion in late 2022.
