Global Rail Australia selected to work on A$100m Bayside Rail Project
The Bayside Rail Project (BRP) is the A$100m upgrade of the 42.7km Frankston railway line connecting Melbourne city centre with the south-eastern suburban city of Frankston. As part of the BRP, improvements are required at Caulfield Railway Station which include the extension of existing canopy coverage on both the Monash University (Platform 4) and Caulfield Racecourse (Platform 1). This is intended to:
improve the overall aesthetic and functionality of the station precinct;
allow commuters to shelter from the rain when walking to and from the existing subway;
reduce slips, trips and falls amongst commuters when running up and down wet ramps leading to the subway;
and provide future space for mounting additional passenger information display (PID) units for better communication of information to commuters.
