PLANS to build a large concrete ceiling above the Windsor train station underpass, which would act as a floor to about a half dozen new shops on Chapel Street, may be on the table.
Government affiliated organisation Victrack, whose role is to operate commercially by adding value to the state’s public transport assets, said it is investigating plans to revamp the Windsor train station, and that a decision or proposal should be expected within 12 months.
The existing underpass bridge isolates the most southern part of the bourgeoisie shopping strip, from the parts of Chapel Street, north of the Windsor train station.
News of a redesigned Windsor train station and underpass comes almost ten years after Victrack undertook a similar exercise at a train underpass a little further north on Chapel Street, between Palermo and Arthur streets.
That redevelopment added about five new shops to the strip, tenanted by the likes of Sportsgirl, Puma and Rip Curl.
