WARRAGUL Station’s new 200-space car park, pedestrian foot bridge and bus interchange were opened at a community event on Sunday.

The facilities were constructed as part of the $26 million Warragul rail precinct upgrade, which also included the installation of traffic lights at the Alfred and Howitt Street intersection, moving and renovation of the historic goods shed and construction of an underpass linking Alfred Street to Normanby Place.
The underpass will be completed and opened mid-next year, while what will happen with the goods shed remains to be seen.
Funding for the project came from state, local and federal government.
