AN alliance led by John Holland and KBR has been awarded the contract to deliver the new Frankston Station, which forms part of the Victorian Government's $63 million Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment.
Genton Architecture emerged from a field of 39 to unanimously win the architectural design competition and has refined the design, which includes a distinctive new canopy and buildings, upgrades to the entrance and subway access.
Other improvements to the area include new public plazas and walkways, which aim to create a thriving, modern shopping and transport hub.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority will oversee the project and minimise disruption by coordinating work with the nearby Skye/Overton Road level crossing removal.
Works will begin this month, starting with utility service relocation and technical surveys, followed by major construction and a temporary station closure from mid-year. Rail replacement buses will transport commuters along the line while the station is demolished and rebuilt.
