A new train station will be built in Melbourne’s outer-western suburb of Toolern, between Rockbank and Melton, to meet growing commuter demand.

The new station will be funded by the Australian Government’s Growth Area Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) and completed by late 2019.

The new station will be located near Ferris Road in Melton South, and include car parking, a bus interchange, and bike storage.

he new station builds on the Government’s massive upgrade of the line through Melbourne’s west, which will duplicate 18km of track, paving the way for future electrification to Melton.

Rockbank Station will be rebuilt with new facilities and more than 300 new car parks.

Additional platforms and pedestrian links will also be built at Bacchus Marsh and Ballan, giving both stations a second platform to boost capacity and allow trains to easily pass each other.

A consortium of Lendlease, Coleman Rail and SMEC has been announced as the preferred bidder to deliver the project.

Early construction work has started, with station upgrades and track duplication to begin in 2019.

    I live in Weir View so I think It will be great to have new station especially with bike storage so the new community will have opportunity to ride to station. Also this area is developing so rapidly – more and more people build their houses over there.
    I only wondering if will be any better easy access road to this station from Weir View and also from Eynesbury.

    The station on the photo looks so out of date – can we have more modern design of station – similar to Caroline Spring ( city of Melton ).
