Riddells Creek car park

Overview

We are upgrading the car park at Riddells Creek Station, building additional car parking to make it easier to catch the train.

The new 50-space car park will include lighting and CCTV for security, landscaping, and bicycle parking facilities to make it easier for people to cycle to the station and connect to public transport.

The community was invited to provide feedback on concept designs for the new car parks at Kyneton Station, Gisborne Station and Riddells Creek Station earlier this year.

Following further planning work and site investigations, the proposed location for the Riddells Creek Station car park has changed. We are therefore giving the community another opportunity to provide feedback on the design.

The new location is to the east of the existing car park, with the car park to be accessed via Hamilton Street.

In addition to the new car park, once works are complete, we will be working with Macedon Ranges Shire Council to upgrade the currently unsealed Hamilton Street into a paved road to better service the community and the new car park.

Planning and design for the new car parking is underway, with construction to begin in 2022 and works scheduled to be complete before the end of 2022.

The projects are being delivered by VicTrack through the Car Parks for Commuters program. The program is helping to deliver the Victorian Government’s commitment of 11,000 new and upgraded car parks at train stations across metropolitan and regional Victoria.

Having your say

This survey seeking input on the concept layout for the car park have now closed. The feedback will be used to inform the detailed design and construction process for the car park. A summary of the community feedback will be available as a report here. You can still keep informed about the project by subscribing for email project updates below.

Next steps

What will be done with the feedback? What are the next steps in the process?

Key considerations for the design of the car park include:

  • traffic flow and pedestrian access in and out of the car park
  • minimising the impact of the construction and operation of the car park on residents and the environment
  • safety and security
  • future local transport planning.

Site assessments will help us to better understand how to manage the design and construction.

We will keep you informed about progress along the way, and how your input has informed the final design and delivery of the car park projects.

Previous consultation

Overview

We are upgrading the car parks at Kyneton, Gisborne and Riddells Creek stations, building additional car parking to make it easier to catch the train.

The community was invited to provide feedback on concept designs for the three car parks earlier this year. Following further planning work and site investigations, the proposed location for the Riddells Creek Station car park has changed. The results of that consultation can be found in our feedback report for Kyneton, Gisborne & Riddells Creek.

The Riddells Creek community is now being provided with the opportunity to give their feedback on the updated concept design.

The new car parks will include lighting and CCTV for security, landscaping, and bicycle parking facilities to make it easier for people to cycle to the station and connect to public transport.

  • At Kyneton Station we are adding 50 extra car spaces, in a new car park proposed for the west of the existing car park on the north side of the tracks.
  • At Gisborne Station we are adding 100 extra car spaces, in an extension and upgrade to the existing gravel carpark on the north side of the tracks.
  • At Riddells Creek Station we are adding 50 extra car spaces, in a new car park proposed for the west of the existing car park, on land not currently being used.

Planning and design for the car parks is underway, with construction to begin in 2022 and the new car parks scheduled to be complete before November 2022.

In addition to extra car parking spaces, these upgrades will deliver:

  • Bicycle parking at the station.
  • Upgrades to safety and security with CCTV and lighting.
  • More accessible parking for people of all abilities.

The projects are being delivered by VicTrack through the Car Parks for Commuters program. The program is helping to deliver the Victorian Government’s commitment of 11,000 new and upgraded car parks at train stations across metropolitan and regional Victoria.

Having your say

Surveys seeking input on the concept layouts for each car park have now closed. The feedback will be used to inform the detailed design and construction process for the car parks. A summary of the community feedback will be available as a report here shortly. You can still keep informed about the project by subscribing for email project updates below.


Next steps

We will keep you informed about progress along the way, and how your community input has informed the final design and delivery of the car park projects

Site assessments will help us to better understand the site and how to manage the design and construction best. At Gisborne, these have already begun.
