Domain station to connect commuters

The southern end of Southbank will have far greater access to public transport, with plans announced for a Domain station as part of the underground Metro Melbourne project.

The new station will be positioned at the Domain interchange on St Kilda Rd, and will allow easier access to the city from the southern end of Southbank, as well as a direct transport link to South Yarra and the southern train lines of Frankston, Sandringham, Cranbourne and Dandenong.

Almost $50 million was put aside in the recent State Budget for further development of the project, which is now in a detailed planning phase. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder last month called for nominations to be part of the project’s community reference group.

This consultation period is planned to incorparate anyone who has an interest, vested or otherwise, in the new project, with Mr Mulder calling for nominations to come from far and wide.

“Throughout this process we will be talking to landowners along the proposed alignment, community members, rail passengers and key stakeholders to ensure ideas and feedback are sought at a time when they can inform project decisions and designs,” Mr Mulder said.

The massive project includes a new underground rail tunnel to run down the middle of the city. It also includes four other underground stations.

In all there are three new stations as part of the plan, as well as extensions to two city loop stations.

“The Community Reference Group will involve representatives from the local community, key land users and local government to ensure community inputs and perspectives are considered and understood by the Melbourne Metro project team,” Mr Mulder said.

“We are also working closely with a number of key stakeholders in the development of Melbourne Metro, including the City of Melbourne, City of Stonnington, City of Port Phillip and major institutions along the route,” the Minister added.
