Making Dandenong Railway Station Precinct Safer (December 2014)

12 February 2015

The City of Greater Dandenong is strongly committed to creating a safer city. Council, together with partner organisations, are currently implementing the Dandenong Railway Station Precinct Action Plan 2011-2018. 

 The Action Plan successfully guides Council and its partners to deliver a range of effective strategies, actions and related activities that aim to improve community safety, the amenity, design and security of the Station and its surrounds.

The Working Group of senior representatives from Metro Trains, Public Transport Victoria and Victoria Police work closely with the Greater Dandenong Council to review the achievements of the Action Plan on a yearly basis and identify priority actions for the following twelve months.

Key actions completed in 2014 include:

  • Disability access ramp from Foster Street to the bus interchange.
  • Installation of CCTV security camera systems in and around the Railway Station Precinct
  • Taxi rank and DDA compliant parking
  • Increased police enforcement of anti-social behaviour has seen reductions of theft of and from vehicles
  • Increased frequency of trains has reduced waiting times for passengers, increasing safety
