The Rockbank community is invited to get a sneak peek of their rebuilt station and celebrate with a community open day on Sunday 25 August from 10am to 1pm, before services return to the station. For more information, see Rockbank Station reopening event.
Rockbank Station is being rebuilt as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade to cater for the growing community.
The upgraded Rockbank Station will have more than 350 car parking spaces, better access for buses and pedestrians, improved shelter, security, lighting and landscaping.
Rockbank Station will reopen to passengers on 26 August featuring:
- two new 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
Construction on the Rockbank Station rebuild began last year, and included installation of the new overpass and platform canopies, building lift shafts and stairwells and construction of a new car park.
Shuttle buses will continue to run between Rockbank Station and Caroline Springs Station, connecting with train services until the last service on Sunday 25 August.
Train services will resume at Rockbank Station from the first service on Monday 26 August.
Replacement shuttle buses leave from Rockbank Station’s new car park (map below). More information about replacement services is available at vline.com.au or by calling 1800 800 007.
