The Victorian Government has unveiled new concept designs for the new Melton Station, west of Melbourne.

The new Melton Station will be built with four platforms to cater for one of the fastest-growing communities in Australia – paving the way for future improvements and increased capacity on the line.

The elevated station will become accessible from both sides of the rail line – with pedestrian walkways, cycling paths, pick-up and drop-off zones, and lifts and stairs to each platform.

The new station will provide better connections for cyclists, trains, buses and car parking with a new multi-bay bus interchange also included in the designs.

Community feedback, alongside technical requirements, have shaped the early concept designs for the new Melton Station precinct and the level crossing removals.
