The Andrews Government’s $63 Million transformation of the heart of Frankston starts on Monday.

“We’re transforming Frankston into a safe, modern hub for transport, TAFE and shopping, and work starts next week.” Minster for Public Transport Jacinta Allan said.

“The Young Street works include a new bus interchange, better pedestrian access, and beautiful new trees and landscaping. It will make this busy area easier to get to and a more pleasant place to be.”

Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan joined Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke today to discuss the works on Young Street, the first stage of the Frankston Station Precinct Upgrade.

Young Street works will deliver a new bus interchange with better seating and shelters, and three waiting bays will be built along Dandenong Road West to give buses a place to park before they start service.

Two roundabouts will be removed and a new one will be built further north, to reduce traffic congestion along Young Street.

Wider footpaths, new trees and better landscaping will also be delivered as part of the State Government’s $13 Million improvement for Young Street, which will complete by April next year.

“Frankston Station has been neglected for too long. It’s the heart of our growing community and a gateway to the Peninsula it’s time to make it a place we can be proud of.” Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke said.

“The works on Young Street are the first stage of our $63 Million investment in a better Frankston, for passengers, visitors and those of us who call Frankston home.”

Improvements to Young Street are part of the State Government’s Frankston Railway Station Precinct Upgrade, which transform the heart of Frankston into a safe, modern hub for transport, education and shopping.
