Dee Ryall MP, Member for Ringwood was joined today by Ryan Smith, Member for Warrandyte and Heidi Victoria, Member for Bayswater to declare the re-developed Ringwood Station and Bus Interchange, open.
The $66 million in funding provided in 2013 to redevelop the Ringwood Station and Bus Interchange has seen a transformation, including:
- The upgrade of Ringwood Station, including full accessibility, improved pedestrian amenity and shelter;
- A new pedestrian concourse;
- An upgrade of the heritage-listed brick station building;
- Reconstruction and expansion of the bus interchange;
- New toilet facilities;
- A new high-quality and landscaped station forecourt.
Consultation and planning commenced in 2013, with construction commencing early in 2014. Completion of the Ringwood Station and Bus Interchange redevelopment marks a significant step as a major public transport hub for commuters and visitors alike.
Much needed PSOs were introduced at Ringwood Station in 2012.
The Station not only delivers a modern epicenter for commuters, it also provides great access to the recently developed Eastland Shopping Centre, Ringwood Town Square and REALM.
