Maroondah Journal: Station 'a blueprint for safety'

By July 4, 2006No Comments

With the announcement of State Government funding for the completion of detailed design options for Ringwood Station there is increasing expectation that the redevelopment of Ringwood Station will be completed by the end of 2008.

It is critical however that Ringwood Station is redeveloped into a safe and user-friendly transport interchange, which provides for easy and accessible integration between bus and train services.

The Maroondah Journal reported on the announcement:

Public Transport Users Association spokesman Alex Makin said the most important aspect should be improving bus and train accessibility and pedestrian access across the Maroondah Highway.

“People with mobility problems have great difficulty getting across the road in the time provided.”

Pedestrian access between Ringwood Station and the retail frontage across Maroondah Highway must be improved in order for Ringwood to become a pedestrian friendly centre.
