Berwick's new transport hub
10 Dec 2020
Three rounds of community consultation has helped shape designs for the new Clyde Road underpass and Berwick Station bus interchange, with new artist impressions released today showcasing the design.
Safety and accessibility will be improved, and new and upgraded shared use paths will connect health and education services to Berwick Station.
Key themes we heard from the community during consultation include, an enhanced local identity, better walking and cycling connections, more landscaping and improved safety and facilities.
What we heard from locals
An enhanced local identity
The new road underpass will feature images reflecting the local landscape. Heading into Berwick village, the colours reflect the leafy township and looking south, the grassland plains and local suburban skyline.
Earthy textured materials on the walls of the underpass include impressions of 16 to 28 million year old fossils, found at Wilsons Park, highlighting the area’s rich history. Anti-graffiti coatings will also be applied to the new surfaces.
Better walking and cycling connections
A new shared use path will run from Reserve Street into the new bus interchange at Enterprise Avenue, improving walking and cycling connections in the area.
New and upgraded pedestrian connections will make it safer and easier to access public transport, commuter parking and vital health and education services off Kangan Drive.
Improved facilities and safety
The new bus interchange has been designed for safety and accessibility, with sheltered seating for year-round weather protection and good visibility day and night.
A new bike storage facility and bike hoops will provide space for 90 bikes, creating more ways to access public transport.
More than 37,000 trees, plants and shrubs will be planted in the area, including oak trees to provide shade and wind protection.
We'll provide the community with another update, once designs for the new bus interchange are finalised early next year.
The Clyde Road Level Crossing Removal Project and new Berwick Station bus interchange will be completed by 2022.
