Andrews Government has unveiled the design of the new Frankston Station part of its $63 Million transformation of the heart of the bayside suburb.
“The new station will be safer, more accessible and more user friendly. It will be a true gateway to the Peninsula, and a place the community can be proud of.” Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan said.
“It’s part of our investment in a better Frankston, and our record investment in better public transport for Victoria.”
Announcement is the culmination of two years of detailed planning and consultation, and a national design competition.
Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan and Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke visited Genton Architecture today, whose design was chosen from nearly 40 entries.
“Frankston has been fighting for this investment and we’re delivering it a new station, safer community and a better place to live.” Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke said.
“After years of hard work, it’s so exciting to see our new station. I can’t wait to see work start later this year.”
New Frankston Railway Station will be safer, more accessible and more user friendly. It will be a true gateway to the Peninsula, and a place the community can be proud of.
Construction of the new station will begin later this year, with work to improve Young Street already well underway.
That work will deliver a new bus interchange, wider footpaths, fresh landscaping, and road improvements to reduce congestion.
Rebuilding Frankston Railway Station is the centrepiece project of the Victorian Government’s $63 Million investment in the redevelopment of the Frankston Railway Station precinct, which includes major improvements to Young Street between Wells and Beach streets.
Redevelopment will be a further catalyst for the transformation of the area into a modern, safe and thriving place of business and activity.
