North Williamstown Station designs are here
11 Oct 2020
The wait is over for locals keen to cast their eyes over the new station precinct being created as part of the Ferguson Street Level Crossing Removal Project.
Detailed artists impressions for North Williamstown Station are now available for viewing below.
Maintaining the village feel of Williamstown was a key part of the design process, shaped by three rounds of community feedback and more than 1800 submissions.
Well-lit for safety, the entire precinct will be surrounded by gardens and paths, including a currently unused area that will be converted into a grassed open space.
An original red brick building will be used for station operations on the station’s western side.
While the space needed for a rail trench means the existing eastern building can’t be retained, it will be replaced with a new building that is architecturally designed.
Secure bicycle parking will be incorporated into the station precinct.
Pedestrians will benefit from a new signalised crossing across Ferguson Street and a spacious station forecourt.
The new pedestrian lights will be synchronised with a nearby crossing to help traffic flow once the level crossing is removed.
Stairs, ramps and lifts will lead down to the station platforms, lowered below the ground in line with the level crossing removal’s rail under design.
Construction at Ferguson Street will begin in early 2021 and the level crossing will be removed in 2022.
