Hurstbridge Line

Hurstbridge Line

The new modern stations at Greensborough and Montmorency reflect the community’s desire for stations that are minimalist in design, blending seamlessly into the local environment.

We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the Country in which Hurstbridge Line is located. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

As part of the Hurstbridge Line Duplication Project, Melbourne’s Greensborough and Montmorency stations were rebuilt and Diamond Creek Station was upgraded. The new, modern stations have facilities accessible to all members of the community, replacing the old stations.

The works to all stations, whilst differing in scale, improve passenger experience and safety, redefining the stations as integrated transport hubs, enhancing the amenity and quality of local public spaces.

Greensborough Station

The new design provides a public bridge connecting the existing activity centre to Poulter Avenue and the parklands beyond. Silhouetted next to the bridge, the station is clad in vertical black fins that illuminate at night, making the station easily visible, increasing safety. The interiors have been designed to frame views of the area, harnessing the character of the landscape. The materiality of the bridge has been specifically selected to convey an earthy quality, creating a link to the landscape on either side of the Network.


Montmorency Station

The new Montmorency Station is at the heart of Montmorency village and has been designed to complement the village feel of the existing high street. The striking but simple design reflects the character of the local area and the scale of the buildings and general infrastructure have been minimised to sit within the landscape, rather than dominate it.

Canopy roofs float off the buildings providing shelter and an entrance gateway to the platforms. The materials again reflect a subtle approach to sitting within the landscape and share the same qualities with Greensborough.

The new design and infrastructure improve connections around the area and delivers the community’s request for a minimalist design that blends into the local environment with low visual impact, native vegetation, and the use of natural materials.
