With the release of new works packages by the Victorian State Government, Broadmeadows Railway Station will undergo a much needed makeover to make it easier and safer for people to use public transport and to cross the busy Pascoe Vale Road.
Member for Broadmeadows, Frank McGuire, announced $4 million in State Government funding to improve access and amenity at the station, with a new northern entrance, concourse and toilets, and pedestrian subway upgrade.
“Ensuring commuters and pedestrians can get access to public transport safely and easily is one of my key priorities,” Mr McGuire said.
Safety improvements will also be made at the Pascoe Vale and Dimboola Road intersection, which is a key access point to the station precinct, and at a new northern entry to the Broadmeadows Railway Station.
“Creating ramps, upgrading existing toilets, and installing safer pedestrian access will mean passengers will be able to access the public transport they need.
“Improvements to traffic management in this area will ensure road users and pedestrians are safer when crossing this busy intersection,” Mt McGuire said.
Victorian transport land, assets and infrastructure owner VicTrack is delivering the program on behalf of the Victorian Government.
The infrastructure improvements is part of the $14.3 million package for the revitalisation of the Broadmeadows Metropolitan Activity Centre funded by the State Government in the 2016/17 budget.
