Grimshaw completes 'fastest station to date'

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Grimshaw has unwrapped its newly completed Nunawading Station in Melbourne, Australia

Partly constructed from prefabricated station amenity pods clad in a vitreous enamel panel, the scheme took just over six months to complete.

The £88 million project, which includes an elevated concourse covered by EFTE canopies and a bus interchange, is part of a wider project for the ‘grade separation’ of Springvale Road and the local Belgrave-Lilydale rail line - a major north-south link in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

.According to the practice ‘the station design has eliminated any need for the rail level crossing that existed at Springvale Road, providing improved travel times and better safety outcomes for pedestrians, road, and rail commuters’.

A spokesman added: ‘The project was driven by the imperative to minimise disruption to transport users during implementation and adopt the shortest possible construction period, while giving commuters a safe and state of the art public transport interchange facility.’
