Victoria Station upgrade

A new bus interchange will be part of recently announced Frankston Station improvements

The Victorian Government has announced a new bus interchange and extra waiting bays as part of plans for the Frankston Station redevelopment project.

The new interchange and bays will help congestion traffic issues on Young Street.

In addition, two roundabouts will be removed from the street and a new one will be added to further improve traffic flow.

In January, a government taskforce was appointed with making recommendations to improve the central Frankston precinct.

The project, managed by VicRoads, will undertake the somewhat vague recommendations, including an improved streetscape for Young Street, new public plazas, and improved car park access and management.

Minister for Transport Jacinta Allan says the $63 million dollar project will include $13 million to improve Young Street and make it more pedestrian friendly.

"We’re transforming Frankston into a safe, modern hub for transport, TAFE and shopping – and work starts next week," she says.

"The Young Street works include a new bus interchange, better pedestrian access, and beautiful new trees and landscaping. It will make this busy area easier to get to and a more pleasant place to be."

More transport improvements are to come, but Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke says the Young Street work is only the beginning of a vastly improved Frankston.

"The works on Young Street are the first stage of our $63 million investment in a better Frankston, for passengers, visitors and those of us who call Frankston home."
