Wendouree station will receive a major upgrade as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade.
This will create enough space for trains to pass each other at Wendouree station for the first time, fixing the current problem that sees delayed services from Melbourne terminate at Ballarat and passengers forced onto replacement buses because trains can’t pass at Wendouree.
The station upgrade will include:
- an additional platform on the south side of the station
- new accessible pedestrian link between platforms
- track duplication
- added security features including more CCTV and lighting.
