Great news Laverton! The new Aircraft Station pedestrian and cyclist underpass will open next week on Thursday 24 February.
Work will be conducted 24/7 at Aircraft Station and in the rail corridor from 9pm Friday 18 February to 3am Thursday 24 February. Buses will replace trains between Laverton and Werribee during this time.
While the trains aren’t running, the temporary pedestrian overpass will be dismantled and removed.
From Thursday 24 February, access to the Aircraft Station platform will be via the new underpass, and shuttle bus services from Aircraft Station to Laverton Station will no longer be in service.
One hundred new and upgraded car parking spaces at Aircraft Station also be complete by the end of February.
By the end of March, cyclists will be able to access a new 26 space secure bike storage facility and 37 bike hoops at the station.
Work on the forecourts, landscaping and garden beds will be finished over the next couple of months.
