The Bendigo council will look into whether a new railway station is needed in one of the city's growing suburbs.
The council voted last night to endorse a precinct structure plan for the suburb of Maiden Gully, on Bendigo's south-western fringe.
The area is expected to become home to more than 10,000 people by 2030.
The resulting increase in road traffic is a concern for authorities and rail has emerged as a possible option.
The council voted for its staff to prepare a report in the coming weeks on the opportunities for a Maiden Gully railway station to be built, and to look at possible sites.
The Victorian Government is just starting work on a new station in the northern suburb of Epsom at a cost of nearly $9 million.
The council also voted last night to offer formal support to the financially troubled Victorian Football League club, the Bendigo Gold.
