Possible Marion Railway Station renaming

Consultation has concluded. We are in the process of collating feedback to present to elected members.

Marion Council wants local railway station names to be meaningful to both the local community and visitors.

We are seeking your views on possibly changing the name of Marion Railway Station. This needs to be considered in relation to the nearby Oaklands Railway Station.

As part of the upgrade of Oaklands Crossing, the State Government has consulted the community about changing the name of the current Oaklands Railway Station, to Marion Centre Railway Station. This proposed name change aims to identify the station with local landmarks. Marion Centre Railway Station would signal that this is the closest station to our city’s cultural, recreation and shopping centre.

To eliminate confusion for passengers, particularly new visitors, we are seeking the community’s views on a possible name change to Marion Railway Station.

For example, “Oaklands Estate Railway Station” may give visitors a better idea of the location of the current Marion Railway Station and better distinguish it from Marion Centre Railway Station (if that name change proceeds).

Tell us what you think about the possible renaming of Marion Railway Station! Please provide feedback by Monday, 28 January 2019.

Your feedback will be provided to the Minister for Transport for consideration.
