The Craigieburn Rail Project
Pictures above are of left: The station before it was finished and right: The new station as it is now, completed and the new train and bus services have been running since September 2007.
In November 2005, Thiess in Victoria was awarded the contract to construct the Craigieburn Rail Project.
The Craigieburn Rail Project has seen the electrification of 10.2 km of track from Broadmeadows to Craigieburn. It will provide Craigieburn and the surrounding area residents with a modern transportation service when it is completed in 2007, at a cost of somewhere around the $115 million mark.
The project included the upgrading of the Craigieburn Station, a new station for Roxburgh Park, new signaling facilities and the construction of a new overhead electrical power system.
The Craigieburn Rail Project has now been completed and electrified rail services are now running from Broadmeadows to Craigieburn including Roxburgh Park Station.
The Craigieburn Station was officially opened on 30th of September 2007 by the Premier John Brumby and Transport Minister Lynne Nosky. (Pictured left and right).
