Hillgrove by car, by train and, in the future, by bus.
A bus route, along Hillgrove’s Lightsview Boulevard, is being planned for the convenience of residents wanting to commute by train to Southern Cross Station in Melbourne’s CBD.
5 March 2019
Once families are living in Hillgrove, residents will be able to jump aboard the bus and arrive at Rockbank Station in no time. Even better, this local station and the Ballarat Line are also both getting upgraded to further enhance your travelling comfort.
Upgrades underway now include:
- All Rockbank Station platforms are being rebuilt to accommodate longer, six-carriage VLocity Trains.
- There will be a pedestrian overpass constructed between the platforms.
- Also a new sealed, all-weather bus stop will provide shade, a windbreak and rain cover all year round.
- Further to these, the Ballarat Line will have more services during peak commuter times, with trains every 40 minutes after that.
Just a few of the many improvements Hillgrove’s residents can expect to enjoy.
Hillgrove is just 10 minutes by car to Tarneit’s three shopping centres. Keep driving a little further to be in Hoppers Crossing or Werribee and all the services these provide. And with this planned bus route, residents will also have even easier access to Rockbank Station and the many stops on the Ballarat Line.
Hillgrove is a well connected community. Jump in your car and it’s just five minutes to the Western Freeway. The CBD is as little as 35 minutes from here with both Tullamarine and Avalon airports only half an hour away. Or if you prefer catch the bus to Rockbank Station, where you can train it to the CBD in 43 minutes and back home in 34.
