The Bendigo community is being invited to help shape the Andrews Labor Government’s revitalisation of the Bendigo Station precinct.
Minister for Public Transport and Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan, and the Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards, today encouraged the locals to head along to community workshops next month and provide their input on the masterplan for the broader station precinct.
The masterplan is being led by VicTrack, who are working with Regional Development Victoria and the City of Greater Bendigo to investigate the potential development and land use opportunities in the station precinct.
It takes into account the Bendigo Station upgrades, which will be underway during 2018, and potential long-term opportunities through central Bendigo.
Two workshops will be held on Tuesday 5 December – at 3pm and 6pm – and are the first opportunity for the community to get involved.
SJB Urban will lead the masterplan and bring extensive railway precinct project experience, including recent master planning for Ballarat, Echuca and Footscray stations.
