A new station at Toolern, between Rockbank and Melton, will be built as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade to help cater for the growing population of Melbourne’s outer west and take pressure off Melton station.
The station will be built in the future town centre of Toolern near the intersection of Ferris Road in Melton South and the Ballarat-Melbourne rail line.
It will provide the public transport infrastructure and connectivity required to support Toolern’s growth to an estimated population of 55,000 over the coming decades.
The new station will include:
- two platforms connected by an accessible pedestrian link
- sealed car parking
- drop-off zones, taxi spaces and secure bicycle facilities
- bus interchange and shelters
- security (CCTV) and lighting
- station facilities.
