Wendouree Railway Station Precinct Master Plan


The draft Master Plan has been released


The Wendouree Railway Station Precinct Draft Master Plan identifies a number of development opportunities, provides an action plan for infrastructure upgrades, and facilitates the delivery of projects currently underway including track duplication and the addition of a second platform at the Wendouree Station and the re-opening of Gregory Street West.


View the Draft Master Plan

The Draft Master Plan proposes a new pedestrian plaza and bus interchange directly linking Gregory Street West to the station, and additional car parking. It also contains a staged approach to introduce new retail and commercial offerings to allow the Wendouree Station Precinct to function as both a transport hub and vibrant visitor destination.

The master plan identifies a number of priority opportunities, including:

  • Improving the function, useability and appearance of the precinct
  • Improving access and movement for pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and buses
  • Providing for an increasing number of people using the Wendouree Station and surrounding precinct
  • Identifying development opportunities for the revitalisation of the precinct
  • Introduce a new pedestrian plaza and direct access from Gregory Street West to Wendouree Station
  • Identify locations for future additional car parking
  • Introduce future retail and commercial offerings
  • An improved bus interchange to the north of the station
  • A future bus interchange south of the station to facilitate future bus services via the re-opening of Gregory Street West to expanding residential areas to Ballarat’s west
  • Long-term rail infrastructure requirements

The master plan is co-funded by Transport for Victoria and the City of Ballarat.


Community drop-in session

A second drop-in session was held on the 19 March between 3.30-7.30pm where interested community members could provide their feedback and speak to staff from the City of Ballarat, Transport for Victoria and Rail Projects Victoria.
