WORKS are underway at the Broadford Railway Station to improve travel experience for passengers and make the precinct more inviting, comfortable, and accessible.
Seven workers will be on site over the coming weeks to upgrade the platform shelter and improve customer facilities along with improvements to staff facilities.
Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said opportunities to deliver upgrades to community facilities were always welcome.
“We are always looking for opportunities to improve safety, comfort and accessibility in the community and this project will bring a welcome update to the Broadford facilities,” she said.
“It’s wonderful to see that Broadford will benefit from this funding and we will keep the community updated as this important project progresses.”
Minister for Public Transport Ben Carroll said the works would help improve the overall travel experience for Seymour line passengers.
“While this is an important project for passengers in northern Victoria, it will also help keep the local economy moving as we continue to safely respond to the coronavirus pandemic.”
Work commenced on September 3, as part of the Victorian Government’s $328.4 million investment in critical public transport and roads maintenance and upgrades.
Broadford is one of 16 stations to receive a share in a $24 million package to support jobs and deliver improved facilities for passengers across the network.
To ensure the works are able to continue, crews are following strict protocols on work sites to protect the health and safety of workers and the community.
