About

The Young Street Improvement Project involved the rejuvenation of a live and busy transportation hub and shopping strip precinct around Frankston Train Station, west of Melbourne.

The project required extensive works around the train station, and along live rail corridor. The scope included a full reconstruction and widening of the existing road used for 14 bus routes; and the construction of retaining walls to support the adjacent railway embankment and station access; asphalting, paving, traffic signal and associated works.

Ground support works were also required to maintain the existing drainage, access and egress to the region’s major shopping centre (Bayside) and a 360m busy shopping strip during footpath, utility and drainage upgrade works. Throughout construction, Seymour Whyte minimised any disruption to trains, buses, trade, shoppers and commuters through proactive stakeholder consultation, communication and management.

The project delivered a new bus interchange, streetscape improvements transforming the streetscape and facilities into a new pedestrian focused semi-mall urban realm with significant architectural details.

“Seymour Whyte’s Communication team has been exceptional in their engagement and communication tools used with our local traders, my staff at Council and VicRoads the appointed Manager of the project by the State Government.”
