Detailed planning, consultation and even a national design competition over the last two years has seen a final design chosen from nearly forty entries.

Victorian Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan says Genton Architecture's design was the winner.

"The new station will be safer, more accessible and more user friendly," she says.

"It will be a true gateway to the Peninsula, and a place the community can be proud of.

"It’s part of our investment in a better Frankston, and our record investment in better public transport for Victoria."

Construction of the new station will begin later this year, with work to improve Young Street already well underway.

That work will deliver a new bus interchange, wider footpaths, fresh landscaping, and road improvements to reduce congestion.

Rebuilding Frankston station is the centrepiece project of the Victorian Government’s $63 million investment in the redevelopment of the Frankston station precinct, which includes major improvements to surronging streets.
