Bacchus Marsh Station
We are upgrading Bacchus Marsh Station as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade.
The upgraded station will feature:
- an additional platform
- a new accessible overpass linking the platforms
- a new car park with 100 extra spaces
- removal of existing train stabling yard
- improved bus bays and bicycle facilities
- improved security, lighting and landscaping.
Construction has commenced and will be completed by late 2019.
