Work Detail The concept designs of the new Melbourne’s Melton station and rail bridges have been presented to the communities in the western part of city’s suburbs. In Melton, new rail bridges will take trains over Coburns and Exford roads and new road bridges will be built over Ferris Road, and Hopkins Road in Truganina, making Melton boom gate free in 2026. Major construction is on track to start this year, with the new station open and all 4 gates gone for good in 2026, two years ahead of schedule. The new, modern Melton station will be built with four platforms to cater for one of the fastest-growing communities in Australia, paving the way for future improvements and increased capacity on the line. The new transport hub will provide better connections to trains, buses and car parking with a new multi-bay bus interchange and the majority of car parking moving to the northern side of the rail line, off Brooklyn Road. The new Melton station will be accessible from both sides of the rail line with an expansive pedestrian walkway, pick-up and drop-off zones and each platform accessible via 2 lifts and stairs. The elevated station will include a new air-conditioned waiting room and staffed ticket office, along with lighting and security cameras throughout the surrounding area. The expanded station precinct will include a spacious, landscaped forecourt, more connections for pedestrians and cyclists and secure bike storage. The project for the construction of the new Melbourne’s Melton station is part of the project to remove 4 dangerous and congested level crossings. Removing these 4 dangerous and congested level crossings will make moving around the area easier for the more than 73,000 vehicles which use the roads every day, where the boom gates can be down for almost half an hour during the morning peak. The Victorian government will remove 110 dangerous and congested level crossings from around Melbourne by 2030, with 74 gone for good already. The Melton level crossing removal works will also pave the way for the introduction of larger 9-car VLocity trains as part of the AUD 650 million (USD 424.1 million) Melton Line upgrade project, increasing capacity for passengers by 50%. To support the introduction of 9 car trains, a new train stabling facility is being investigated at Cobblebank where trains would be stored when they are not operating.
