Wendouree Electorate – Constituency Question

Juliana ADDISON (Wendouree) (14:47): My question is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, who is in the chamber, regarding the Allan Labor government’s investment to upgrade Ballarat’s historic train station.

Last year I was so proud to stand with the Premier to announce that the Labor government will provide $50 million to upgrade the Ballarat train station, with passenger lifts on both platforms and a connecting pedestrian overpass. This investment will be of great benefit to the community, particularly for people living with a disability and their family and friends, as well as parents with prams, the elderly and passengers with luggage.

Would the minister please tell me how this project is progressing?

This significant investment continues our commitment to redeveloping the Ballarat train station precinct. Proudly, we have delivered a three-level commuter car park with 405 spaces and a new bus interchange.

We have also supported the transformation of our derelict heritage Goods Shed into an asset that the Ballarat community can be proud of, thanks to the Regional Infrastructure Fund.
