Flinders Street Station upgrade a win for Victorian tourism

18 /02/ 2015 Comments are Closed

The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) has applauded the State Government’s announced $100 million upgrade to Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station.

“Flinders Street Station is a vital part of Victoria’s past, present and future and is a major tourism icon,” said VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

“The Station is pivotal to the success of Melbourne’s visitor precinct that includes the neighbouring Federation Square, Yarra River, MCG and arts precinct and this upgrade will bolster what is an increasingly vibrant area.”

Ms Smith welcomed that fact that the upgrade will include enhancement to both the aesthetic and operational aspects of the building.

“Upgrades to platforms, entrances, toilets and information displays will make facilities more user-friendly, especially for first-time visitors. These upgrades are essential to manage increasing visitor and passenger numbers and will encourage more people to use our transport system to explore Melbourne,” said Ms Smith.

“Along with this, the upgraded façade and heritage clock tower will enhance the streetscape and add to this already popular attraction.”
