Car Park Upgrade Program

Project Summary

In April 2018, the Victorian State Government announced a commitment of $60M in the 2018/19 State Budget for new and upgraded car parks and other access improvements at Belgrave, Sunbury, Sandown Park, Craigieburn and Epping railway stations.

This initiative was made to address the growing population and increased patronage coupled with a lack of car parks for commuters.  This program of works is known as “Putting Passengers First ($60 million) station car parking program”, which aims to add over 11,000 additional commuter car parks across the rail network.

On behalf of the Department of Transport, VicTrack are managing the design and construction of Belgrave, Hurstbridge, Sandown Park, Craigieburn & Epping railway stations.  Belgrave is close to design completion going out shortly, and construction commencing in Q3 2021.  The other four car parks are all in the construction phase and have either been completed or will be progressively be completed over the next two years.  These projects have a combined value of over $90M

Touch projects have provided several resources to these projects including, Construction Managers, Project Managers and Project Engineers.

  • We have managed all aspects of the design phase for each project as well as the design consultants, from early concept through to finalised designs ready for market pricing under differing delivery models – construct only & design and construct,
  • Led the development and preparation of documentation for procurement and tendering purposes as well as responding to RFI’s and queries,
  • Developed processes and documentation for the management and delivery of the construction phases,
  • Managed planning permit process with various LIA’s as well as gaining signoff and statutory approvals from other relevant stakeholders,
  • Extensive and ongoing consultation with multiple stakeholders from government departments (DoT, PTV), local councils and individual members of the public,
  • Heavy involvement in all other aspects of these five important projects.
