We are upgrading Donnybrook Station as part of the Shepparton Corridor Upgrade.
The upgraded station will feature:
- adding 150 new car parking spaces
- new platform shelters
- two new bus bays, including shelters
- improved pedestrian, car and bus access
- improved security with CCTV on platforms and in car parks
- Springs Road will also be upgraded to improve access for cars and buses.
The city-bound platform at Donnybrook will be extended to accommodate five-carriage loco-haled and six-carriage VLocity trains and make it quicker for passengers to get on and off, reducing the amount of time trains will need to stop at the station.
We've been engaging with the local community, stakeholders and passengers to better understand their needs and let them know about the work we are doing. Thank you to those who provided feedback via our survey or visited us at our pop up sessions.
Coleman Rail has been awarded the contract to design and construct the upgrades to Donnybrook and Wallan stations.
Before construction can begin, we are undertaking site investigations, including surveys, environmental assessments and testing of ground conditions.
Construction will begin in the coming months and is targeted for completion by 2020.
