We were delighted by the recent visit of Premier Dan Andrews to Atherstone’s Cobblebank Station last week. His visit reiterated the ongoing commitment to building the infrastructure that this local community needs to grow. Along with the station opening later this year there will also be a new bus service, route 454, that will use Cobblebank Station's bus interchange. Additionally, Atherstone's Cobblebank Station are in the midst of a two-week construction blitz concluding Sunday 7 July.
