Hopkins and Irving Streets, Footscray
Client: Department of Transport
Project type: Heritage Impact Statement
As part of the Regional Rail Link, Footscray Railway Station was upgraded to provide two additional platforms and improved passenger amenity. Peter Andrew Barrett prepared a heritage impact statement that assessed the impacts from the proposed works on Footscray Station, which is recognised by the Heritage Council of Victoria to be of cultural significance to the State of Victoria. Recommendations in the heritage impact statement were adopted by the Department of Transport, which have retained the historic character of the Footscray Railway Station, while upgrading the complex to the standards needed for a modern transport interchange.
