As part of a Victorian Government initiative to revitalise the Broadmeadows Metropolitan Activity Centre, we are upgrading the Broadmeadows Station precinct to make it safer and easier to access for commuters and pedestrians.
The Broadmeadows Railway Station Upgrade Program will improve connectivity and facilities at the station, and includes building a new northern entrance, revamping the toilets and refreshing the existing pedestrian subway.
We will also make safety improvements at the Pascoe Vale and Dimboola Road intersection and at the new northern entry to the station.
Works will take place during 2018.
The works at Broadmeadows Station and nearby roadworks will deliver improved Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant station toilets, and improved platform accessibility and connectivity including a ramp to the new entrance at the northern side of the station building.
There will also be landscaping along the new entrance.
The underpass will be upgraded with LED lights, painting, resurfacing of the pavement and new security mirrors.
The closure of the slip-way and subsequent creation of a turning lane at the Pascoe Vale and Dimboola Rd intersection will improve pedestrian safety. Landscaping will also be carried out to make the precinct more inviting.
Timing of works
Works on the station building and the pedestrian underpass are underway and progressing well.
The removal of the slip lane on Dimboola Road into Pascoe Vale Road is also in progress, and nearing completion.
All work is scheduled to be complete before the end of 2018.
We are working with project partners and stakeholders including Metro Trains Melbourne, Public Transport Victoria, DELWP and Hume City Council, to minimise the impacts of works on commuters and people who work in the precinct.
Train services from the station will not be impacted by the works. However, you may need to allow extra time to pass through the station during construction, so please plan ahead and move through the area with care.
