Rockbank Station has been rebuilt as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade.
The rebuilt station is modern and accessible, to cater to Rockbank’s growing population.
Passengers will find it much easier to get between platforms and around the station, with lifts and ramps available for people with mobility aids or prams.
The rebuild included 350 car parking spaces, better access for buses, improved shelter, security, lighting and landscaping.
The upgraded Rockbank Station features:
- two new longer platforms to fit six-carriage VLocity trains
- an accessible pedestrian overpass linking the two platforms
- a new sealed car park, with bus and taxi bays, secure bike storage areas and drop-off zones
- myki facilities, improved lighting and CCTV.
Rockbank Station passengers are benefitting from two new peak weekday services introduced in December 2019 after the 18km of duplicated track between Melton and Southern Cross Station came into use.
A new bus route was also introduced between Rockbank Station and nearby Aintree to service passengers in this growing community.
More services will be introduced along the line in 2020, following a period of disruption for the commissioning of second platforms, new track and passing loops, as well as safety testing and driver training.
