The northern suburbs rail project will bring new life to Hobart and the northern suburbs. Each station location provides exciting opportunities for development and urban renewal. Here are some examples of potential stations and the benefits they provide the local community.
Mawson Place Station
The proposed Mawson Place station is only one block from the CBD, and would ideally suit integration with a ferry service to the eastern shore. This would make travel easier for people on all sides of Hobart, and help fix traffic issues during peak times in the CBD and at Bellerive Oval.
The station would be conveniently located on Hobart's waterfront, close to the CBD, and major tourist attractions including Salamanca and the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery. The combination of easy access for city workers, and links to tourist attractions make this an ideal location for our central station.
A Once in a lifetime opportunity
A once in a lifetime development opportunity, Macquarie Point is one of the last remaining vacant urban infill locations in any Australian capital city. Much like a northern suburbs light rail service, Macquarie Point provides an excellent opportunity to shape Hobart's future as a modern, connected and vibrant city.
AN IMPORTANT LINK
The location of Macquarie Point on Hobart's waterfront is highly appealing - easy access to major festivals such as Dark Mofo, conference & office facilities, or Hobart's cruise ship terminal make it a desirable location for a station on a future light rail line, providing a key link between the city, suburbs and a major tourism & events centre.
PARK & RIDE
With a catchment of over 13,000 residents in Moonah and surrounding suburbs, this would be an ideal park & ride station located in a major business precinct. With good road connections and potential to expand existing facilities, Moonah will be an important hub.
A station located close to Moonah's business district provides access to a growing food & cultural precinct in Hobart's inner north. A station in Moonah will continue to drive urban renewal, and will foster business investment and jobs growth in the area.
With a large catchment area of over 15,000 people and proximity to an existing bus interchange, shops and services, Glenorchy station will act as a major connection point for bus, train, bicycle and park & ride commuters.
This station is conveniently located in the heart of the Glenorchy Business District, adjacent to the Northgate Shopping centre, government services, and the KGV stadium and sports precinct.
MONA / Berriedale
Located within 500 metres of the internationally renowned Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), Berriedale station provides a convenient 15 minute link from Tasmania's most visited tourist attraction to the CBD.
PARK & RIDE
There is ample space at the Berriedale site for a park and ride facility to support surrounding areas of Berriedale and Chigwell. The station provides a reliable and fast transport link for residents in these suburbs to shops and services in nearby Glenorchy and the CBD.
