Designs have been finalised for the new Union Station in Melbourne’s east, following extensive community consultation since December 2020.

The updated design will feature a station entrance and pocket park on Montrose Street, Improved disability access with a dedicated drop-off area at the Mont Albert Road entrance and more durable station materials that reflect the heritage of the local area.

The design also shows three new open spaces, two decks to create new open space and plans to deliver 52,000 new trees, shrubs and plants.

Major works are well underway to remove the two dangerous and congested level crossings at Union Road and Mont Albert Road with an open rail trench and build a new premium station. The level crossing will be gone, and the new Union Station will open in 2023.

Works have started on building the trench walls as crews prepare to excavate the rail trench and remove the level crossings. Crews are currently planning for a construction blitz starting in July to prepare for trench works early next year.

Works have been scheduled to ensure either Union or Mont Albert roads are open most of the time.

The community will have the chance to hear from the project team about the final designs on Thursday 2 June.
