After many decades of driver and commuter frustration, the Noble Park boom gates at Corrigan, Heatherton and Chandler Roads have finally been removed. The brand new elevated Noble Park Station is up and running – locals have told me it looks great, feels safer, and is an excellent investment in our community.

We’re grateful for everyone’s patience while this major project is underway – the end result is good for drivers, train commuters and local residents who can soon enjoy the community space it has created.

Work is well underway removing the old tracks in preparation for the creation of new open spaces. There will be 8.7 hectares of open space, 103 new commuter car spaces, over 800 new trees planted, a fitness area and a dog park.

The new Noble Park Station precinct will include a new civic plaza and station forecourt. A new entrance will be opened with direct access to the station from Douglas Street. A new link road from Ian Street to Leonard Avenue will also connect residents on the north and south or the rail line.

I look forward to seeing the progress of the next phase of this exciting project that’s rejuvenating Noble Park for residents, traders and commuters.
