Welcome to the Whittlesea and Manea Station Enhancement Platform Lengthening Consultation

The future visions for Whittlesea and Manea Stations have been set out in Railway Station Masterplans. These Masterplans include a variety of proposed improvements that can be delivered through short, medium and long term projects. One of the largest and most aspirational projects is the proposed platform lengthening at both stations.

Currently both Whittlesea and Manea have platforms that are only long enough to accommodate 2 car trains. This has resulted in fewer opportunities for additional train services to stop at these stations and selective door opening on some train services that do stop.

Work has been ongoing to develop viable options to increase platform lengths at both stations to accommodate 4 car trains. Three options have now been identified for each station that could achieve this.

This consultation is to explain the work that has been undertaken so far to get to the options stage and share the details of each option with you.

Have your say

We would like to know what you think about the options for the platform extension at Manea Station and the platform extension and footbridge at Whittlesea Station.
