Caroline Springs Railway Station (New Stations)
Public Transport Minister Martin Pakula was today joined by the Member for Kororoit Marlene Kairouz to turn the first sod at the site of the new station which is part of a $220 million package for new stations in Melbourne’s growth areas.
“The Brumby Labor Government is taking action to ensure people in Melbourne’s west have good access to public transport services,” Mr Pakula said. ... “The station, due to open in 2012, will serve current and future public transport needs and help people access jobs, study and also stay connected with family and friends.”
The new V/Line station will be situated on the Melton Line, between Rockbank and Deer Park stations, approximately one kilometre south of Caroline Springs estate.
Member for Kororoit Marlene Kairouz said the modern station facilities would be safe and comfortable for commuters to use.
“The design for the new train station will also include extensive lighting and closed circuit camera security surveillance (CCTV) at and near the station, including the car parks, bus stops and approach paths to the station,” Ms Kairouz said. ... “The train station will feature a new park and ride facility with approximately 200 car parking spaces, as well as easy access to bus stops and a taxi rank. The station will also provide more sustainable transport options with pedestrian and bicycle access to the surrounding area, as well as a bike cage at the station.”
The Department of Transport will initially carry out excavation work on an access road to the future station from Christie's Road roundabout.
Over 200 suggestions were received following a competition to name the new station. The name of the station will be announced later this year.
