Second entrance for Windsor station

A Liberal Nationals government will open a second entrance at Windsor station if elected in November this year.

A Matthew Guy led government will get commuters home faster by opening a second entrance and adding extra Myki readers so patrons can move on and off the train at the northern end of the station.

The Liberals continue to focus of the safety of commuters and commit to adding CCTV cameras at the station.

There are approximately 4,000 passengers who use the station daily, with patronage increasing as population in Windsor and surrounding areas increase.

The second entrance will include a ramp to allow for those passengers who use a wheelchair to access the station platform with ease.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Public Transport, David Davis:

“Station users will benefit from easier access on and off the platform saving them from missing trains and walking long distances to their cars and homes.”

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Community Safety, Ed O’Donohue:

“The Liberals will continue to invest in the safety of all Victorians, including those who are using our public transport network.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Prahran, Dr Katie Allen:

“Locals have all told me how they have missed trains due to the congestion at the entrance and at the Myki reader. This second entrance will help ease the crush at peak times.”
