The Victorian Government is seeking feedback on the recently released Frankston Station Precinct Improvement Plan. The $13.8 million dollar plan aims to make the precinct focused around Young Street an attractive and greener space to encourage foot traffic.
A draft concept has been developed based on feedback from the community, commuters and key stakeholders. The concept includes improvements to better manage buses, taxis, pedestrians, cyclists and private vehicles as a way to improve the safety and amenity of the area. The project aims to make the station more accessible, safer and welcoming for all users.
Key improvements include:
• An attractive new public space with the potential for retail opportunities
• Improved waiting areas with high-quality lighting, seating and shelters
• Maintained access to vehicle parking
• Wider paths, more walking routes and an increased number of pedestrian crossings to encourage foot traffic
• A greener precinct with more trees and space. The project supports the wider urban renewal of Frankston and is being managed by the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DTPLI)
