South Morang Rail Extension

Melbourne, Victoria

The South Morang Rail Extension provides improved access to public transport services for Melbourne’s northern communities. The creation of two new rail stations (at South Morang and Thomastown) and the relocation and modernising of a third (Epping Station) lie at the heart of this project, with all three forming key nodal points in a longer term urban focus. The design provides a sense of place for each of the stations, reflecting how users might engage with them – as places to transit through, and to; as safe places to be in; as sheltered and welcoming environments in which people might gather. Form and materials speak of a robust and safe rail and interchange environment offering a warmth and scale suitable for community-focussed public use. The stations are designed as catalysts for future projects, including larger scale mixed-use developments and fine-grain projects harmonising with the station plazas.
