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.
The rebuild includes:
- 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.
We’ve made good progress on the Rockbank Station rebuild since construction began last year, including installing the new overpass and platform canopies, building lift shafts and stairwells and starting work on the new car park.
The next step is to demolish and rebuild the station platforms. To do this safely trains will not stop to pick up or drop off passengers at Rockbank Station for a period of two months, starting on Monday 24 June.
Coaches will replace trains on the Ballarat line for two weeks from Monday 24 June to Sunday 7 July.
From Monday 8 July, shuttle buses will run between Rockbank Station and Caroline Springs Station, connecting with train services. Taxis will be available for passengers as necessary.
More information about replacement services is available at vline.com.au or by calling 1800 800 007.
From Monday 24 June access to the existing temporary car park at Rockbank Station will be closed and part of the new car park will be open on the northern side of the line near Leakes Road (map below). Replacement coaches and shuttle buses will leave from this area.
The station will reopen in late August, with the full facilities including the 350-space car park and pedestrian overpass accessible to passengers.
