This Melbourne Shopping Centre Is Getting An Expansion

Resident’s in Melbourne’s south-east are finally getting a train station in-between Highett and Cheltenham, more than 100 years after the idea was originally floated.

The Andrews Government has decided to put $21 million from the state’s coffers into a train station at Southland to service one of Melbourne’s busiest shopping centres.

There will be some disruption to the Frankston line while it is being built but the Government has promised it will be minimal.

Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allen said the station would be complete by the end of 2017, in time for the Christmas rush.
