Tarneit West Station is on the way
In great news for the community, the new train station has been officially funded by the Victorian government.
The Victorian Government is continuing to deliver for Melbourne’s west with two new train stations and planning upgrades for a third – improving safety, accessibility and better connecting locals for years to come.
Melbourne’s west is growing fast, and it's essential to keep investing in infrastructure to support the increased population.
That’s why the Labor Government will deliver a brand-new station at Tarneit West, an overhaul of the existing Albion station and planning works for Truganina Station as part of a more than $200 million package of works.
At Tarneit West, the new station will include a pedestrian crossing, a four-bay bus interchange and parking for up to 400 commuters. The new Tarneit West station will be located on Davis Road and in conjunction with the planning for a new Truganina station, it will better connect the growing suburbs in the west to the CBD.
The new station will build on the Labor Government’s significant investment in transport upgrades in Melbourne’s west and northwest, with more than $27 billion in road and rail infrastructure through the Big Build.
The Metro Tunnel, Suburban Rail Loop, Sunbury Line Upgrade, Melbourne Airport Rail, West Gate Tunnel Project and upgrades to local roads will significantly improve the way locals get around each day by reducing travel times, improving safety and reliability.
To ensure more trains can run more often, the Victorian government is also removing 17 dangerous and congested level crossings in the west and northwest – with 12 already gone for good.
