By Lynton Balia on 02 October 2018
As part of the multi-million dollar Ballarat Line Upgrade, the Bacchus Marsh Station in Victoria is set for an upgrade. Upgrade on the train station is nearing its construction, with the design revealed.
Included in the Bacchus Marsh Station upgrade are an additional platform, a new accessible overpass linking to the platform, a new car park with up to 100 extra spaces, removal of the existing train stabling yard, improved bus bays and cycling facilities, improved security, lightning and landscaping.
The new platform at the station will enable two trains to stop at the station at the same time, together with 3 kilometres of new track. In addition, a new stabling facility is going to be built further up the line at Maddingley, with the existing stability facility at Bacchus Marsh to be removed.
Construction is set to commence later this year and completion is due in late 2019.
