A new era for the Ballarat Station Precinct

A new era for the Ballarat Station Precinct

The City of Ballarat has welcomed the State Government’s unveiling of the Ballarat Station Precinct.

The development is an exciting commercial, transport and community precinct that will transform this section of Ballarat’s CBD.

It includes a modern apartment hotel, a refurbished Goods Shed Convention Centre with large conference and event facilities, public plaza, access roads, commuter carparking and a bus interchange.

The City of Ballarat is grateful to the State Government for its ongoing commitment to infrastructure investment in Ballarat, with $28 million delivered for the project.

City of Ballarat Mayor Cr Daniel Moloney said the revitalisation of the area will provide a vibrant welcome to locals and visitors alike.

“The station precinct redevelopment will make a difference to Ballarat’s current and future generations that will live and thrive in our progressive regional city,” Cr Moloney said.

“This project restores the station and precinct to their former glory and unlocks the capacity of an under-utilised area of our CBD,” he said.

“The precinct is one of our city’s key community assets and although it has been primarily used as a transport hub, it will now become a vibrant place to socialise and do business.

“As a council we have a strong focus on the revitalisation of our central business district through initiatives such as our CBD Strategy, and we are determined to ensure Ballarat’s infrastructure continues to effectively manage and cater for a modern and growing population.”
