Locals can have their say on new stations being delivered as part of the Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade
Passengers in Greater Bendigo will have more travel choices from next year thanks to new stations funded by the Victorian Government.
The Victorian Government has invested $49.6 million in Bendigo Metro 3, including new stations at Goornong, Huntly, and Raywood, which are being delivered as part of the Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade.
Goornong locals will be the first to benefit from the project, with the new station on track to be delivered by the end of 2021.
Huntly Station is targeted for completion in mid-2022, nearly a year ahead of schedule, with Raywood Station on track to follow in late 2022. These new stations will give people in these growing communities access to the train network close to where they live.
Each new station will include a single-sided platform and car parking as well as lighting, seating and shelter.
The new stations as part of Bendigo Metro 3 are being delivered as part of the Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade to bring efficiencies and minimise disruption to the local community.
Members of these communities can now provide their feedback on the concept designs for the new stations, which show station layouts and other features.
The local community can view the concept designs, complete an online survey or book a time to speak with the project team by Sunday 6 September at bigbuild.engage.vic.gov.au or by calling 1800 105 105.
Feedback will be incorporated into the final designs of the station, along with information gathered from recent site investigations.
