Flinders Street Station
The Victorian Government has invested $100 million to revitalise Flinders Street Station and make the station more functional for passengers.
In mid-February 2015 Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan announced that funds have been provided to undertake urgent restoration works and upgrade station platforms, entrances, toilets and information displays.
Without urgent heritage works, parts of the station will become unsafe, unusable, and eventually unsalvageable.
The Victorian Governments $100 million investment will fund urgent works to repair the Administration Buildings exterior and make the building watertight.
Works will also help commuters and tourists who use the station every day. Platforms and entrances will be upgraded to ease passenger congestion at peak times and allow people to move through the station faster.
Toilets will be fixed, underutilised areas will be cleaned up and well lit, and new information displays will be installed.
The project will commence in 2015 and is estimated to take four years to complete. It will create jobs, boost the surrounding commercial precinct and help keep Melbourne a tourist destination.
In addition, a business case is being developed that will allow the Victorian Government to consider options to fix the old ballroom and other derelict parts of the building. Project Website
