Frankston public transport connectivity Construction Details

The connectivity of the public transport network both to, and through, Frankston is the objective of this initiative. This may include the following:

  • increased coverage and frequency of bus services

With major redevelopments occuring east of Frankston, these upgrades would play an important supporting role.

Frankston public transport connectivity Jobs & Community Plan

Situated approximately 50 km south-east of Melbourne, Frankston has a population in excess of 140,000 people and is one of Victoria's major metropolitan centres. With major redevelopments occuring at Chisholm TAFE and Monash University and a large-scale redevelopment in planning for the Hospital to the east of Frankston, the public transport network requires improvements. Currently, the challenges with the Frankston public transport network are as follows:

  • the bus services integrate insufficiently with rail services and run circuitous routes
  • the rail service runs from Melbourne and further on to the Mornington Peninsula, however is not electrified for the stretch from Frankston Station south
