New Hallam Station designs revealed
13 Jul 2020
Commuters in Hallam will have faster and safer journeys when the Hallam Road level crossing is removed, and a new Hallam Station built.
Station designs revealed for the first time today take community feedback into account – safer pedestrian access across Hallam Road was a key priority for 96 per cent of people who participated in community consultation.
Designs for the elevated rail line now feature platforms spanning Hallam Road and station entrances, lifts and stairs on both sides of the road, so commuters can catch the train without crossing busy Hallam Road.
Its bold design features architectural screens that will turn the new station, used by 2200 people each day, into a local landmark. The new station will be built as part of the Hallam Road level crossing removal project.
The level crossing removals, Metro Tunnel and new high-capacity trains will together create capacity for 121,000 extra passengers each week on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines during peak periods – a 45 per cent increase.
Major works will start on the Hallam Road Level Crossing Removal Project at the end of 2020 with the Hallam Road level crossing to be removed in 2022.
