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.
We're starting work in late June on rebuilding the northern car park at Bacchus Marsh Station. This will mean some major changes to car parking at the station over the next few months.
Coaches will replace trains on the Ballarat line for two weeks from Monday 24 June to Sunday 7 July. During this time the car park at Bacchus Marsh station will have some spaces closed for minor work, and replacement coach services will leave from the station building as usual. Temporary alternative parking will be available at the eastern end of the station.
Throughout July and August there will be further temporary changes to parking at Bacchus Marsh Station. Information will be available at the station as these changes occur. Passengers should leave extra time to arrive at the station and find a parking space during this time, and follow the signs in place directing vehicles and pedestrians.
More information about replacement services is available at vline.com.au or by calling 1800 800 007.
