Lendlease Communities welcomes new train station for Atherstone
Lendlease Communities has welcomed the State Government’s announcement of a new train station at Toolern to service Melbourne’s booming outer-western suburbs.
The new Toolern station will service Lendlease’s Atherstone community, which will eventually be home to around 15,000 people.
Located near Ferris Road in Melton South, the station will include car parking, a bus interchange and bike storage.
Managing Director of Lendlease’s Communities business, Matthew Wallace, said that the new Toolern station is a game-changer for the Atherstone community.
“We acknowledge the State Government’s vision in bringing this project to life. For our Atherstone residents this means a shorter commute time into the CBD, allowing them to spend more time with their family,” Mr Wallace said.
The new station between Rockbank and Melton will be ready to take passengers by late 2019.
Atherstone is a 481-hectare master planned community and will have approximately 4,500 homes upon completion.
