A new dedicated regional platform will be built at Sunshine Station to enable more regional services to stop at the station, improving access for regional travellers to Melbourne Airport Rail and Metro Tunnel services, and the Sunshine area.
The new platform will be delivered on the western side of Sunshine Station, together with a range of upgrades including:
Rail Projects Victoria is overseeing the planning and delivery of these works.
Sunshine Station is a key transport interchange in Melbourne’s west, with 4 platforms currently hosting more than 350 metro and regional services each weekday.
A pipeline of major rail investments for the west – including the Metro Tunnel, Melbourne Airport Rail, Suburban Rail Loop and the Western Rail Plan – will all contribute to Sunshine Station’s transformation into a transport superhub.
This means better facilities, more trains and more travel options, with services available to Melbourne Airport, Victoria’s western regions, Southern Cross Station via Footscray, and Melbourne’s CBD through the new Metro Tunnel.
The new regional platform dedicated to regional services will allow more services to stop at Sunshine Station, improving connectivity between the regions, airport and Melbourne’s booming west.
