On 28 April, Williams Landing Station will be open to commuters.
To mark this exciting milestone, we’re hosting an exclusive sneak peek celebration event for the community at the Williams Landing Station ahead of its official opening.
This event will give locals the opportunity to be among the first people to walk through and explore the new station.
Come and be entertained by local performers, enjoy a sausage sizzle and take part in a scavenger hunt quiz.
The event will also feature demonstrations and information about bicycle facilities available at the station and cycling in the Wyndham area.
- Date: Sunday 21 April 2013
- Time: 10am to midday

Road access will be available via the Palmers Road extension from Point Cook.
Parking is available at the new station car park off Palmers Road.
Point Cook locals are encouraged to walk to the station via the new pedestrian bridge over the Princes Freeway.
As the Palmers Road extension from the Williams Landing estate will not be open to traffic until 28 April, a free shuttle bus service for Williams Landing residents has been arranged.

The Williams Landing Project involves the construction of a new premium railway station and an extension of Palmers Road.
The project will improve Melbourne's transport network and benefit the rapidly growing communities of Point Cook and Williams Landing.
The new Williams Landing station will be a zone 2 station on the Werribee Line between Aircraft and Hoppers Crossing stations.
Palmers Road will also be extended across the rail line to link the station and Williams Landing town centre with the Princes Freeway and Point Cook.
The project is being delivered as a partnership between Public Transport Victoria, the Department of Transport, VicRoads and Metro Trains Melbourne. Abigroup is the construction contractor for the project.
The Williams Landing Project includes the construction of an elevated station building adjacent to the new Williams Landing town centre.
As a premium station it will be staffed from first train to last and provide passenger amenities such as toilets and an air-conditioned waiting area.
The station will feature:
- an island platform accessible by stairs, lifts and ramps
- a new bus terminal and a taxi rank
- a park and ride facility with approximately 500 spaces, and drop-off zones
- a pedestrian footbridge across the Princes Freeway
- facilities for cyclists.
The extension of Palmers Road will feature:
- a new section of road across the Werribee rail line
- two dedicated right turn lanes from Palmers Road to the Princes Freeway city-bound
- one dedicated through lane north-bound to Williams Landing
- two dedicated through lanes south-bound to Point Cook, with a left turn onto the freeway city-bound
- two off-road shared bicycle and pedestrian paths.
