Inland Rail unveils designs for Euroa railway station precinct
Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) Inland Rail has presented a new open, accessible, and functional Euroa railway station precinct design to residents for comment and feedback.
The proposed design features a vehicle underpass to replace the Anderson Street bridge, a station forecourt opened to Railway Street, a new station platform, additional carparking and two pedestrian underpasses to provide access between the platforms and connectivity across the precinct.
ARTC Inland Rail will now begin a month-long community consultation period to gather feedback on the precinct’s proposed layout, look, feel, and interface with surrounding areas.
Feedback will also be sought on how to acknowledge the history and options to repurpose components of the Euroa goods shed.
The goods shed needs to be removed as it conflicts with the proposed new station infrastructure and is a risk to public safety.
Inland Rail is a nation building project that will transform how goods are moved around Australia.
In Victoria, work will be carried out at 12 sites, including Euroa where the Anderson Street bridge will be replaced, and the railway precinct modified to enable double-stacked freight trains to pass safely and ensure everyday products can be delivered faster and more reliably across the country.
A construction contractor for the Euroa railway station precinct will be appointed in 2024 and construction is expected to begin in 2025.
Feedback will continue to be incorporated through to construction and the community will be kept up to date on how it has influenced the design.
Ed Walker, ARTC Victoria and South Australian General Manager Projects said:
“It’s clear the Euroa community is passionate about how Inland Rail is delivered and their vision for the project is reflected in the latest design of the railway station precinct.
“We thank the community for the feedback on the Anderson Street solution and we’re pleased to advise we will proceed with the vehicle underpass.
“Residents are encouraged to have their say on these exciting new designs. We want to hear the community feedback.”
